March 26 - Kingston Transit moves to reduced Sunday service and adds dedicated hospital shuttle
Beginning Thursday, March 26, Kingston Transit will operate on a reduced Sunday service schedule seven days per week. All routes will operate on a Sunday schedule except for the following:
- All Express routes will be reduced to 60-minute service frequency and will operate from approximately 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
- Route 7 will be reduced to 60-minute service frequency and will operate from approximately 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
- Routes 1 and 15 will reduce service to operate from approximately 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
- Routes 17, 18, and 18Q will be suspended.
A dedicated shuttle bus will also be added to support healthcare workers in our community who continue to commute to work. The shuttle will offer direct service from the Centre 70 Park & Ride to Kingston General Hospital from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week.
Service level changes are being made due to the decline in ridership, with some routes down as much as 80 per cent, and to further protect our bus operators and passengers. Riders should only use Kingston Transit for essential trips at this time.
These service level changes will remain in place until further notice. We continue to look at different ways to provide reliable, sustained service for those passengers who need it most and appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through these changes. Additional service changes are possible and passengers should continue to monitor our website and social media for updates.
