Peterborough, ON - Peterborough Transit is making adjustments to some route schedules starting Sunday, September 5, 2021 to reflect a return to more regular ridership and traffic conditions.

Schedules and maps with the adjustments are posted at Customers are encouraged to check timetables. The Google Maps trip planner is also available.

On weekdays, most regular routes will operate on at least 30-minute frequency during rush hour. Late night service on routes 5 and 6 resume. A new route, Route 11 – Water, has been included to provide direct service between the downtown terminal and Trent University.

New Route: Route 11 – Water

This is a frequent weekday-only service with two variants, primarily operating on Water and George Streets. Both routes will serve all designated bus stops on route.

  • Route 11 will provide direct service between Trent University and the Peterborough Terminal.
  • Route 11A will provide direct service between Trent University and Traill College.

Route 2 – Chemong 

This route has been changed and will no longer operate across the top of the city to Trent University. This route will focus on the shopping corridor and now terminate in the new Broadway Boulevard subdivision in the north end. Please refer to Route 6 for service on Hilliard Street and Cumberland Avenue.

This service has been improved to operate at 20-minute frequency from 12:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m., 7 days a week. It will continue to operate at 30-minute frequency at other times of the day.

Route 4 Weller

From Weller Street, the adjusted route will operate in a counter-clockwise direction using Fair Avenue, Ravenwood Drive, Parkhill Road, Brealey Drive, Glenforest Boulevard and Fair Avenue and back to Weller Street. These trips will no longer operate on Ireland Dr. Some bus stop locations will change on Fair Avenue and Glenforest Boulevard to the other side of the road.
