null Kingston Transit service reductions take effect Tuesday, March 17

March 16, 2020 -

Update - March 16 at 3:45 p.m. We understand some passengers have concerns about how the reduction in transit service may impact how they get to and from their destinations. During planning, we also considered the limited availability of our bus operators. To support both our staff who are unable to come to work and the passengers who use Kingston Transit, the service changes allow us to continue service across Kingston, and will provide reliable and sustained service in the weeks to come.

The safety and well-being of our staff and passengers is vitally important to Kingston Transit and we appreciate your patience as we adjust to the new service schedules.

Beginning Tuesday, March 17, Kingston Transit will operate on a Saturday service schedule six days per week from Monday to Saturday, and continue to operate on a Sunday service schedule on Sundays. The most significant change is a reduction in the frequency of trips on Express routes on weekdays, with buses running every 30 minutes.

Real-time apps will not reflect the service changes and passengers should refer to the Saturday and Sunday service schedules.

Saturday service levels will still allow passengers to travel across Kingston however passengers may need to take a different route or adjust their travel time to get to their destination.

Service changes are being made due to the recent decline in ridership due to the cancellation of public and post-secondary classes.

Kingston Transit continues to ensure increased sanitizing practices on all common touchpoints aboard buses.

These service changes remain in place until further notice. The patience and understanding of our passengers is appreciated as we work to adapt to the change in service levels. Additional service changes are possible. Please continue to monitor our website and social media for updates. 

We remind residents that Kingston remains a low-risk community.

The City continues to monitor the information released by the provincial Ministry of Health and other public health partners, including KFL&A Public Health.
