Gettin’ there in Muskoka gets easier next week with launch of new transportation service

Two routes connecting communities east and west

Two new ways to get around Muskoka starting next week.

The District has partnered with Hammond Transportation on a service connecting Muskoka communities east and west, and with other transportation networks within and beyond Muskoka.

Rural and Community Connection will offer two routes each operating one day a week.

Tuesday’s route will run return trips from MacTier to Port Carling, Milford Bay, Bracebridge, Baysville, and Huntsville. A Thursday Route runs return trips from Midland to Port Severn, Honey Harbour, Bala, Gravenhurst, and Bracebridge. For riders needing to travel north and south, connections will be made in Bracebridge and Gravenhurst to the District’s Corridor 11 Bus. The schedule also establishes connections to the Simcoe County LINX service in Midland for riders travelling to Barrie. In addition, the schedule has been coordinated with other local service providers to the extent possible including the Wave in Bracebridge and Huntsville Transit.

Rides will be free until further notice.

Service begins next week.
