Bus

Peterborough Transit bus routes will be relocated out the downtown Simcoe Street transit terminal on starting Tuesday, July 13, 2021. Buses will pick up and drop off customers at designated areas on the north side of Simcoe Street next to the terminal.

Buses are not able to access the bus bays at the terminal until the fall due to the rehabilitation work being done at the Simcoe Parking Garage structure.

The shift to street-side pick up and drop off on the north side of Simcoe Street next to the terminal affects Route 2, Route 4, Route 5, Route 6, and Route 10.

To allow buses to pick up and drop off customers on the north side of the street, trips will arrive from the east and depart to the west. On the approach to the terminal, there will be minor route changes to Route 2 southbound, Route 4 eastbound, Route 5 northbound, and Route 6 eastbound.

Customers can contact Peterborough Transit with questions at 705-745-0525 or by email at transitoperations@peterborough.ca.
