September Service Roundup - Oakville Transit

For the Oakville Transit riders, you're getting some service upgrades this September which will make transit in the Town easier to understand and access. Here's what to expect:
  • Zone Express (dial-a-bus) service will be complimented by fixed routes on all days of the week, including holidays. The zone service will be complimented by routes 14, 19 and 24.
  • Route 26 will no longer enter Oakville Place. This might make the route faster overall, and hopefully will not result in too much longer of a walk.
  • Route 19 will now run until 12:25 am, replacing Zone Express in the area with a fixed route.
  • Routes 19 and 20 will no longer be interlined at the Uptown Core for the 7:25 pm and 8:25 pm trips.
In other news, Oakville Transit is holding a public meeting on September 13 at 7:30 pm at town hall. Aparently residents who live along Route 11 are unhappy about Oakville Transit buses operating on residential streets. Considering that buses always stick to the speed limit, are highly visible to anyone attempting to cross, and that the drivers are highly trained professionals (unlike some car drivers on the road), I submit that one bus on the street is much safer than twenty cars.
