MyRide, Burlington Transit’s real-time bus arrival and trip planning tool, will be offline intermittently on Thursday, Nov. 2 for routine maintenance.

Please visit our schedules and maps to download a copy of your schedule. Bus arrival times can change because of weather and traffic conditions. It’s a good idea to be at your stop five minutes before the scheduled arrival time.

More buses to get you where you need to be

Posted on Friday, August 25, 2023 10:41 AM

More buses to get you where you need to be! You told us that you wanted more frequent service. We heard you! Starting Sept. 3, you’ll see more buses on the road getting you where you need to be. We are increasing our service on Route 1 Plains, 2 Brant, 3 Guelph, and Route 12 Upper Middle.

Route 1 will be arriving at your stop every 12 minutes between the morning and afternoon peak hours. Route 2 and 3 will be picking you up every 15 minutes all day, then every 30 minutes in the evening. You’ll also see Route 12 more often, with a bus arriving at your stop every 30 minutes all day, every day. 

Our overview of service chart below details all the service frequency changes coming your way in September.

Along with putting more buses where you need them most, we are also making minor schedule changes to help you connect with GO Transit.
