Proposed LTC Service Changes
LTC is proposing service changes in our area including running buses along Lawson Road during evenings and weekends. LTC is seeking input on this change. You may have already received a card in the mail.
There will be an open house at the Sherwood Branch library on November 27th between 2 and 4 pm and between 6 and 8 pm. There is also an on line survey at londontransit.ca under Service Updates. You have to do a little digging to find the change as there are a number of other changes – the change in our area would be to the #9 route. You can also e-mail comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
The last time this change was proposed, it was quite contentious. LTC will be making a final decision on this and other route changes in January.
Development at the Sherwood Forest School Site
The City will be holding a meeting in late January to review options for the park development. The public participation meeting at City Hall for the site plan for the new housing development is to be held on January 7, 2019. We don’t have the time yet, but will post that when available. According to the developer, if all goes well at City Hall, construction of the new housing will begin in March of 2019.

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 email@example.com
