Grand River Transit 2015 service plan:
Public meetings, April 15, 16, 22



The Region of Waterloo is hosting public meetings this month to present Grand River Transit’s improvement plan for 2015. Region and GRT staff considered public comments from an earlier series of meetings in November to develop this plan. Regional Council will consider and probably approve these service changes during its meeting in May.

In this plan, staff propose:

  • expanding the the iXpress bus network,
  • providing more direct transit service to major destinations throughout the region; and
  • integrating GRT bus routes with the future ION light rail transit line.
