DRT hosts information events on service plans, March 6 to 24



Durham Region Transit is again hosting its annual public information centres throughout Durham Region. This year, DRT holds 11 sessions, starting Tuesday, March 6 in Oshawa and wrapping up Saturday, March 24 in Pickering.

During these events, you can meet service-planning staff and provide feedback as DRT begins planning for 2019. You can also learn more about DRT’s 2018 plans to improve its services (.pdf).

During its meeting of Tuesday, February 14, Durham Region Council approved DRT’s budget for 2018, which includes:

  • almost 11,000 hours of more service;
  • new buses, including four new growth buses; and
  • better website, as a part of better passenger communications.

According to DRT, adding almost 11,000 hours of more service will strengthen the transit agency’s high frequency network, including adding the 120 Whites route to the network and extending high-frequency service along the 915 Taunton route to Harmony Terminal. (The buses will still serve the North Oshawa campuses of Durham College and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT).) DRT is also increasing capacity on the busiest routes during rush hours and weekends, and commercial and employment areas will also see more service weekends. DRT will also expand service into new-growth communities this summer.

For the first time in four years, DRT’s fleet will grow by four new conventional buses. It’s also buying 16 buses and four new specialized-services vans to replace to replace older vehicles. These new vehicles, DRT says, will keep the network running safely, efficiently and reliably for years to come.

DRT’s budget for 2018 also includes funding for resources to improve passenger service and communications, which includes an easier-to-use website.

DRT staff have scheduled the events:
