Welcome to Let’s Talk Transit! A platform for current and potential transit users of Bracebridge Transit to be in the know! This platform provides the most up-to-date information on all transit initiatives within the Town of Bracebridge.

On August 29, 2016, the Town introduced the Conventional Transit service, Bracebridge Transit, which is a local service that is designed to connect the Town’s urban core. On January 1, 2017, the Bracebridge Mobility, specialized transit service, was introduced which is a door-to-door shared-ride accessible public transit service for people with disabilities.

The relatively recent introduction of transit to Bracebridge, both conventional and specialized, is an exciting milestone for sustainable and equitable transportation in the Town. The youth and success of the service to date in conjunction with a rapidly changing public transit industry provides an important opportunity to continue to review the Town’s transit system.

The Town would like to keep hearing from the community on all Transit related projects and initiatives. Have your say – sign up and send us your questions, or participate in any posted survey.

We want to know your thoughts, whether you are a current rider, thinking about riding the bus, or would like to know more! Ensure that you subscribe to this page to stay up to date and Let's Talk Transit!

    The Town of Bracebridge has engaged Left Turn Right Turn Limited (LTRT) to assist in a review of the Town’s transit services, both the conventional and specialized service, in order to provide direction for Bracebridge Transit that best reflects the needs, values and priorities of the community through a five-year plan.

    The Town believes that a focused and detailed evaluation of the Town’s transit system will help to enhance staff’s commitment to on-going effective management and continued quality service of Bracebridge Transit and Bracebridge Mobility.

    Bracebridge Transit and Bracebridge Mobility have been operating in Town since 2016 and 2017 respectively, with immense success across the community and, prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic, monthly ridership had more than doubled as of January 2020. As we come upon the transit service’s fifth year, it is time to start planning for the next five years.

    We cannot further evaluate Bracebridge Transit without first speaking with the residents of our community - we want to hear from you!

    To participate, take the Community Transit Survey. You don’t have to ride transit to have your say. This survey is available from November 4, 2020 to November 20, 2020. Your feedback will be used to make recommendations for the on-going improvement of Bracebridge Transit.
