In the name of faster, more efficient service, the City of Barrie is changing up some routes. The changes take effect today.
“We’ve experienced significant ridership growth in recent years,” said Brent Forsyth, Director of Transit. “Since the implementation of the Georgian College Universal Pass in September 2018, Barrie Transit has seen a 36 per cent increase in ridership. In response to this demand, our staff worked hard to identify a cost-neutral route plan that will enhance the service.”
These updated routes, designed with ridership and bus tracking data, are being introduced with no additional operating costs.
