St. Catharines Transit is gearing up for the start of another school year with two new bus routes to Brock University, thanks to funding from Brock University Students’ Union.
A shuttle from Towpath Road in Thorold to Brock University and an additional bus running from the Pen Centre to Brock University during peak times will help make getting to classes less stressful for students.
“This is good news for bus commuters living in Thorold and along Glendale Avenue,” said Phil Porter, marketing and customer service supervisor for the St. Catharines Transit Commission. “These are services students have been asking for. We’ve been working with the Brock University Students’ Union on making this year’s commute to Brock a little easier.”
The new routes will shuttle students from their stop to the university within 15 minutes. Route 123 Towpath-Brock will operate every 30 minutes Monday to Friday from 7:35 a.m. until 6:35 p.m. The route 124 Pen Centre-Brock shuttle operates Monday to Friday from 7:35 a.m. until 8:50 a.m. and 1:50 p.m. until 5:35 p.m.
The routes start on Tuesday. Detailed route maps and bus schedules are available at from the transit commission.
