18_waterdown_route_map_changes_201509

Route 18 WATERDOWN will see some MAJOR improvements when the fall schedules take effect this September, including increased service, Saturday service and bi-directional service. The route will not run in a clockwise loop and buses will now travel in both directions through the community of Waterdown.

Several new bus stops will be installed on select collector streets, along with new bus stops on the south side of Dundas Street and the north side of Parkside Drive. A new bus stop will also be established beside Walmart. Route 18 WATERDOWN buses will now operate in both directions, instead of the one-way clockwise routing currently operated on Dundas and on Parkside.

Service frequency will be 30 minutes in both directions. Service will be provided on Weekdays between 5:30 a.m and 8:30 p.m and on Saturdays between 8:30 a.m and 8:30 p.m. All buses will operate via Mill Street and Waterdown Road to/from the Aldershot GO/VIA Station, where connections to GO, VIA and Burlington Transit can be made.

Service will no longer be provided on Evans or on Highway #6. There will be no service provided on Sundays and Holidays.
