Transit in Penetanguishene, Ontario.jpg

Penetanguishene Transit, operated by Penetanguishene, Ontario, is responsible for public transit in the small city in rural Southern Ontario.[1] The agency's single route is operated on its behalf by Midland Transit, and transfers are free between the two systems.

The route is a loop, that proceeds north along Penetanguishene Harbour, and south along Church Street, with multiple lobes, like an amoeba.[1] The route covers almost the entire city. Only a single bus is required to serve the city, and in September 2021 the agency replaced its current bus with a more modern bus capable of kneeling, so passengers in wheelchairs could board or de-board.

The route starts at the Georgian Bay General Hospital, in nearby Midland, Ontario, where passengers can transfer to the Midland North route.[2]

Drivers can stop for passengers, if they flag down the bus from a location where it is safe to stop.[1]

Fares are $3 CAD for adults, $2.50 for senior and students, while children under 60 inches tall ride for free.[3] The bus takes one hour for its circuit of the route, and with its first and last departures at 6:30am and 5:30 pm, on weekdays. First and last departures are 8:30 am and 4:30 pm on Saturdays.

I see, daily, people boarding in wheelchairs and easily on walkers; the step goes down and then comes back up again. And of course, the LINX bus actually kneels as the European buses do. So the entire county, including Penetanguishene, has become much more accessible.'"
