Intercity Bus Service

People serving People

The City of Sarnia, in collaboration with the Municipality of Strathroy-Caradoc and the City of London, was successful in obtaining a provincial grant of $1.45M over a period of 5 years to implement an intercommunity bus service. The goal of the program is to improve the transportation options for residents travelling for medical, leisure, education and employment.  We are working towards the new service starting operation by mid-2019.  The service will be outsourced to a private transportation provider.

The grant has some minimum requirements:

  • The route must provide service between Sarnia, Strathroy, Mount Brydges, and London
  • It must be a fixed route with a minimum of two return trips per day during weekdays
  • The vehicle must have a minimum capacity of 10 passengers
  • A fare must be charged

The requirements are only a minimum and the service is expected to exceed those requirements. As part of the development of the service we would like to obtain your input on what type of service would best suit your needs.

If you prefer to submit your feedback in person or want to discuss the proposal in more detail you can join us at a public meeting on Wednesday, July 25, 2018 at City Hall. There will be no formal presentation at the meeting, but residents are welcome to drop in anytime between 6-7:30pm to discuss the project and provide input.

Comments can also be sent to engineering@sarnia.ca, or mailed to the Engineering Department, 3rd Floor, Sarnia City Hall, 255 North Christina Street, P.O. Box 3018, Sarnia, ON N7T 7N2.
