Kingston Transit is expanding service to “employment areas,” implementing changes that will affect most routes, according to the City of Kingston.

In a media release, dated Wednesday, May 1, 2024, the City said its “next stop” is more frequent service and increased access, beginning Monday, May 6, 2024.

“We are making seasonal adjustments based on demand, increasing frequency and improving service to employment areas,” said Christopher Norris, General Manager of Kingston Transit. “One example is Route 7 which will now offer extended service to stops at Employer Transpass partners like Canada Royal Milk and Frulact Canada.”

The City encourages transit riders to check their favourite transit app or Kingston Transit’s website to learn how these updates may affect their journeys.

In the release, the City outlined significant changes, including:

  • Route 1 will see extended 30-minute service to 11 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
  • Route 11 will have a completely new schedule as we return to 30-minute service on weekdays.
  • Route 12A, linking CFB Kingston and the Bus Terminal, operates every 30 minutes.
  • Route 7 will be modified to reach Clyde Industrial Park and will service stops at Canada Royal Milk and Frulact Canada
  • Route 14 will use Gardiners Rd. to reach the Cataraqui Centre Transfer Point and will now service Halifax Dr. off Crossfield Ave.
  • Route 15 will only complete one loop through the Cataraqui Woods area to improve service reliability.
