Cornwall Transit route changes take effect December 10

Posted On Friday November 23, 2018

You wanted buses to be on time. Cornwall Transit listened.

Cornwall Transit is pleased to announce upgrades to conventional bus routes, effective December 10.

Passengers can get a new route map from their driver the next time they take the bus. Here’s a summary of the planned changes. For more detailed information, please see below. New route maps are attached at the bottom of this page.

  • As part of the Transit Master Plan recommendations, the Cumberland, Sunrise, McConnell and Community service routes will travel in a straighter line by reducing turns, loops and changes in direction.
    • The Sunrise route will no longer travel along Hamilton Crescent, Lynn, Jase and McMartin.
    • The McConnell route will no longer travel along 12th Street, Guy Street and 11th Street between Guy and McConnell.
    • The Cumberland route will no longer travel along 13th Street, Henry, Alfred, 14th Street, Liseux and 15Th Street.
    • The Community Service route will not go into the Benson Centre or Cornwall Transit.
  • The Riverdale route will now service the Smart Centre. Cornwall Business Park will continue to be serviced with one minor change to late-night service.

“These route revisions will help keep buses on time and alleviate passenger concerns regarding late buses during peak hours,” said Len Tapp, Transit Division Manager.

Cornwall Transit is committed to helping passengers adjust to these changes. Bus stops that are no longer being serviced will be covered and a sign will be placed on them directing passengers to the nearest bus stop.

Cornwall Transit completes over 800,000 passenger trips annually. The City-operated transit system is committed to providing effective and efficient service with emphasis on energy conservation.
