Do something good for your health and the environment - use local transit instead of parking
The park and ride lots often fill to capacity, especially with the current construction at the Ordze Transit Centre. Transit highly recommends that all transit users take their local transit route to the associated terminal. It only adds about 15 minutes to most commutes.
Research shows that leaving your car at home increases heart health and reduces greenhouse emissions. Take care of yourself and the environment - leave your car at home.

Plan your trip
1. Using Google Maps
- Open Google Maps.
- Once in Google Maps click the blue arrow in the top left corner.
- Select the Transit icon from the top of the menu.
- Entering your starting point and destination to find route options.
2. Using route schedules
Here’s an example of how to use the route PDFs to plan your trip.
- I need to be at work at Government Centre at 8:30 a.m.
- Looking at the commuter schedules, I see that the 413 travels to Government Centre (stop #1301).
- It arrives there in the morning at, 7:12, 7:27, 7:42, 7:57, 8:12, 8:27, 8:42, 9:12, and 11:42 a.m.
- I need to be at my desk by 8:30, so I’ll need to arrive there at 8:12 a.m.
- By following across the row where the trip ends at 8:12, I can see that this trip leaves the Terminal at 7:45 a.m.
- I live in Lakeland Ridge; nearest stop # 7707, so I need to catch a 433 route bus that will get me to the terminal before 7:45 a.m.
- Looking at my timing point (stop #8138), I see that I need to catch my bus at 7:33 a.m. (giving myself 5 minutes cushion as not to miss my local bus) to arrive at the Bethel Transit Terminal for 7:40 a.m. Ample time to get on the 7:45 a.m. Route 413.
- My complete trip will take me approximately 50 minutes.

Bus arrival/departure locations at terminals
Your bus will always depart from its designated location at the terminal - this way you always know where to catch it. However, upon arrival at the terminal, buses may occasionally drop you off at a different stop on the platform other than the one you are currently riding. This may position you closer to, or farther from, your desired connection. Have no fear, your connection will not leave without. our operators do not leave the terminal until the platform is clear of customers.
Why does this happen? in order to increase operational efficiencies, buses are often assigned to more than one route in one day - it's called interlining, and a common practice in the transit industry. Interlining allows for the effective use of buses, as well as providing our operators with a bit of variety in their day.

Evening and weekend service replaces Dial-A-Bus effective May 1, 2017. Buses now travel on fixed routes and schedules and customers are no longer required to call-in to book a pick-up. The new routes and schedules are below.
Evening and weekend service is hourly service, and is designed to arrive and depart Bethel Transit Terminal at the same time, and to connect with our commuter service.
The final trips of the evening have no scheduled stops after their departure from the Bethel Transit Terminal. As the final trip of the day, buses will not be returning to the terminal and so this trip is drop-off only.
Please review the schedules and stop numbers to ensure you arrive at your correct stop, at the correct time. Routes have changed slightly from the Dial-A-Bus service, and this will affect some pick-up times.
Hours of operation:
Monday to Friday: 7:15 p.m. to 12:15 a.m.
Saturday: 6:15 a.m. to 12:15 a.m.
Sunday: 7:15 a.m. to 8:15 p.m.
