New To Transit?

Welcome to Peterborough Transit! We operate 7 (seven) days a week, serving most places within the City of Peterborough.

To get started, we recommend that you browse through the different sections of this website to familiarize yourself with our services. Then, get a Peterborough Transit map from the transit terminal on Simcoe Street or one of our buses. The map is also available on this website for viewing only.

Using the transit map, mark where you need to take the bus from and where you are going to. Look at what bus route is closest to where you are starting your trip. If you are unsure of the time the bus will get to the stop you are starting from, call Peterborough Transit at 705-745-0525.  You may have to transfer to a different bus route at the terminal to get to your destination. Note that the Community Bus, express services to Trent University, Fleming College and the Technology Drive area have their own separate maps and schedules. Everyone can ride the community bus and express buses, regular fares apply.

When you get on the bus, enter at the front door; if you can, please exit through the rear door.  To pay, please deposit the proper fare, coins only, into the fare-box (be aware that our machines don't give change for over payment), or use a prepaid transit pass, sold at the transit terminal on Simcoe Street and at Lansdowne Place Mall.  When you are approaching the stop where you want to get off the bus, pull the cord running along the windows and "Stop Requested" should show up on the sign at the front of the bus.  

Peterborough Transit buses are fully accessible with wide doors and no stairs, including a ramp for those that need it.  Strollers are permitted on the bus, but bicycles are not.  Pets are permitted on the bus if they are in an approved pet carrier.
If you need assistance with what routes to take, we are happy to help. Come to the Customer Service window at the transit terminal during operating hours or give us a call at 705-745-0525. The bus drivers are very helpful as well.
