Sarnia, ON — Starting August 4th, a new transit service will connect the Southwestern Ontario communities of Sarnia, Strathroy-Caradoc, and London. The service, operated by the Voyago transportation company, will offer three round trips daily and two weekend round trips.
The busses will have a maximum seating capacity of 10 to 12 passengers, which may increase as needed. Frequent cleaning, exact cash payment, and other precautionary measures will be taken. Masks are required for all passengers.
Mayor Mike Bradley, of Sarnia, praised the new service, saying, “The wheels on the bus go round and round starting August 4th, providing long needed intercity bus service to South Western Ontario to bring us together.” Bradley’s sentiments were echoed by London Mayor, Ed Holder, who said, “A critical piece of our economic recovery depends on our ability to get people to and from work in a convenient and affordable manner. This need is not only local, it is also regional.”
The inter-community transit service is funded through the year 2023. Fares range between $5 and $20 and need to be reserved by phone at 519-787-1055.
