London Transit Route Structure Review

A reminder that LTC is holding an open house at Goodwill on Horton Street on April 8th from 2 to 4 and from 6 to 8, to give you a chance to review the first draft of its proposed transit route changes for the next five years.

Proposed changes to the 31 Orchard Park bus changes are:

  • In 2015 it is proposed that Sunday service between 9 am and 7 pm running every 60 minutes be implemented on the route.

Other proposed changes for the route include:


  • Increase the weekday evening frequency (6 pm to 11 pm) from 60 minutes to 30 minutes
  • Introduce weekday service from 11 pm to midnight on a 60 minute frequency
  • Increase the Saturday frequency from 60 minutes to 30 minutes from 6 pm to 9 pm

At this point, the plan is for service to remain on Sarnia Road after 6 pm.
All of the recommendations are draft and are subject to change based upon feedback from the public.

If you can’t make the open house on April 8, you can provide comments directly to LTC’s manager of Planning Services, Katie Burns at 519-451-1340 ext 320 or by e-mail at kburns@londontransit.ca
