Ride Norfolk interactive map now available online

Users of Ride Norfolk now can use online interactive maps to plan their trips.The map (norfolkcounty.ca/visiting/norfolk-maps/online-interactive-maps/) provides options to see which routes and stops are provided on specific days, including the newly installed route to Brantford.“The map lends itself to riders being able to get a clear snapshot of the daily route Ride Norfolk takes,” said Blaire Sylvester, Norfolk’s public transportation and business development co-ordinator. “Overall, it will help users get where they need to go by showing specific stop locations and connection times for seamless transfers.”Ride Norfolk provides public transit to locations throughout the county. Stops are located in Simcoe, Delhi, Courtland, Tillsonburg, Vittoria, Bill’s Corners, Waterford, St. Williams and others.Earlier this year, a Brantford bus route that operates three times a day, Monday to Friday, was introduced thanks to a successful approval of funds through the provincial government’s Community Transportation Grant. The route includes stops in Waterford, Wilsonville, Oakland and Mount Pleasant en route to Brantford’s downtown bus terminal.The schedule allows for easy transfers with Brantford’s GO Bus service.“We’ve seen a pretty substantial increase in ridership since we launched in May,” Sylvester said of the Brantford route, which now sees an average of 150 users per month. “We didn’t quite know what to expect when it started but, being just over four months in, the ridership growth has shown us this service is needed in our community.”Also this year, Ride Norfolk increased local service by adding a handful of new stops. They include the Delhi Medical Centre, Delhi Friendship Centre, Waterford Medical Centre, and Harbour St. in Port Dover as well as service in Windham Centre.A full list of stops, printable schedules and link to purchase advanced tickets can be found at norfolkcounty.ca/transit/. read more
