Grade 8 Transit Quest
The Grade 8 Transit Quest program encourages students to use Peterborough Transit by providing them with a FREE transit pass for March Break. The Quest works to increase city youth’s familiarity of the Peterborough Transit system as they begin to travel independently. By increasing comfort at this age, transit can become a mode of transportation that is both normal and accessible. Navigating their local transit service helps students build a life skill, one that they will use as they get part-time jobs, go off to school, and move or travel to other cities.
Peterborough.ca/transit has information that will help you get started, including a handy video.[/vc_column_text]
Plan Your Trip (Routes & Schedules)
- Which bus route, and bus stop, is near my starting point?
- Which bus route is my destination on?
- Where is the closest bus stop?
- Do I need to transfer buses?
Peterborough Transit’s regular routes run every day and all buses on regular routes are fully accessible. A transit map showing the regular routes is posted in all the transit shelters and at the Transit Terminal. Printed maps are also available at the Transit Terminal or at GreenUP. An interactive map that shows all the bus stops and shelters is available.
- What time does the bus come to my bus stop?
- When will the bus arrive near my destination?
Check out the Route Schedules to plan when you need to be at the bus stop and to help plan to make sure you reach your destination on time.
