Introducing South Georgian Bay Specialized Transit Services – Transit PLUS
The Town of Collingwood, The Town of Wasaga Beach, and Clearview Township are excited to announce new specialized transit services within the South Georgian Bay Area. The three municipalities will be working together within a joint contract to provide parallel accessible services across the Towns of Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, and Stayner.
In Collingwood, this service will be replacing the current Red Cross service, and the Town subsidized portion of the Ace Cabs service. The Town Wasaga Beach and Clearview Township will be launching this new service as an enhancement to the current public transit services.
New Specialized services are anticipated to begin in The Town of Wasaga Beach and Clearview Township in the month of November, with Collingwood following in mid December. The new service, TransitPLUS will be a door to door service serving residents of our accessible communities. Riders will be required to pre-register by calling Landmark Bus at 705-446-1196 or emailing ReserveST@landmarkbus.com
Pre-registration for this service will open on October 21, 2022. Please call or email to register as soon as possible. If you are a current rider of Red Cross Service, or if you are a first time rider you will still be required to pre-register prior to any bookings. Eligibility requirements, booking procedures, as well as service standards for specialized services are available on all Town websites:
Fares one way are $2.00 for adults and $1.50 for students and seniors, and service will operate from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. 7 days a week. Same day or on-demand service will always be a priority to provide to the community, however pre-booked rides will take precedence, and same day calls will be served based upon a first come first serve model.
This is an exciting partnership between our local municipal partners that will enhance the ability to travel for those with disabilities across local municipal borders. Please visit the any of the Town’s websites to follow updates as start-up of services begins in early November. Questions about the service can be also addressed by contacting your local municipal office.
