Transit schedule changes to take effect March 19

Sarnia Transit will introduced a new, 40-minute bus schedule this month.

The city says the move comes “in an effort to ensure riders make transfers and reach destinations on time,” following public engagement and council approval.

Beginning March 19, most buses will leave from terminals every 40 minutes and take 40 minutes to reach their destination.

“This is really about providing our riders with consistency in service, so they can reliably make transfers to other buses or reach their destinations in time for appointments, work, and other deadlines,” said transit manager Michelle Carter.

Historically, the bus route schedule was based on a 30-minute round trip time frame, but changes including more stops, longer routes and loading times, prompted the change, the city said.

While bus routes will not change, there will be impacts to arrival and departure times.
