DRT hosts annual public information centres,
March 16 until April 4



Durham Region Transit is again hosting its annual public information centres throughout Durham Region. This year, DRT holds a record 14 sessions, starting Thursday, March 16 in Oshawa, and wrapping up Tuesday, April 4 in Brock Township.

During the events you can learn more about DRT’s 2017 plans to improve its services and to comment on its 2018 Service Plan. In 2017, DRT intends to develop its high-frequency network, introduce new Saturday service in northern Durham Region and add new service to growth areas.

These changes support DRT’s Five-Year (.pdf) and Rural-North (.pdf) service strategies, which you can review on-line or in person during these sessions. You can also provide your input on DRT’s 2018 proposals by attending the open houses in person or by using #DRT2018 on social media.
