Transit Windsor services is adding routes and increasing bus frequency while maintaining public health guidelines.

Since returning to service in early May, Transit Windsor says that they have continued to monitor ridership and route needs on a daily basis and has addressed service levels accordingly:

  •  Central 3 West Route has been added, providing access to grocery stores and other shopping centres.
  • South Windsor 7 route has been added, providing better access to the south end of the city, including Walker Road and Devonshire Mall.
  • Walkerville 8; Transway 1A and Dougal 6 routes will see increased levels of service to meet customer ridership needs.

After implementing these additional service level changes, and because of the public health restrictions and Ministry of Transportation guidelines, Transit Windsor will not be able to increase service further until at least early September.

Fares continue to be waived, and all passengers are asked to enter and exit the bus through the rear doors. Riders with accessibility needs may continue to use the front doors; one wheelchair passenger at a time may occupy this area. Over the course of the past several months, ridership numbers have remained significantly below pre-pandemic levels.

Current ridership has been reduced by about 80%, as compared to 2019.
