Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Grand River Transit
The one on the NOT LRT platform side (as I said, garage side) was installed by GrandLinq?

Yes, it was part of the reconstruction of Charles St.

Basically, any bus stop that would be a possible transfer from an Ion station.

So there's no significance that it just came online too?

As it will be a feeder to GRT, I think this can go in this thread.

Seeing as Route 21 only barely touches the residential areas of the town, I think this is a great idea, and I hope it proves to be very successful.

Looks like someone rear ended a GRT bus @ Fredrick and Victoria

Surprise!
Buses stop sometimes!

That's the westbound stop, in front of the Whale and Ale plaza.

Changes in Route 10 for September. 
Quote:Starting Monday, September 3:
• Route 10 will be renamed Route 10 Pioneer.
• We're adding extra service, so buses will leave Fairview Mall every 15 minutes from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. year-round (except Christmas).
• Between Pioneer Park plaza and Conestoga College, the route will alternate between two branches. Route 10 will continue to serve current stops along Green Valley Drive and Mill Park Drive every 30 minutes. The new 10A branch will serve stops on Old Carriage Drive and Homer Watson Boulevard every 30 minutes.

We're also adding extra trips during the late evening on Saturdays and the morning and evening on Sundays.

These changes will serve new high-rise student residences, provide a more direct trip to and from Conestoga College, maintain service to the Mill Park area, and help relieve crowding on busier sections of the route.

Preparation for network changes continues - at Ion launch, Forest Glen terminal will be defunct, so they are laying new stops on Strasburg by its entrance.

I also saw an old shelter being removed just a bit up at Block Line, presumably to be replaced.

GRT just posted this to their YouTube channel:





Could a public launch be on its way?

The icons on the top make it look like you can use a credit card with PayPass... can you just tap a credit card?

That would be nice.

At this point though, I'll be happy to be rid of paper tickets....well except on greyhound...and LTC.  So hard to stay positive Tongue.

I do hope a launch is near though.  I have a handful of ticket left, and I don't want to buy more.

I asked about that at one of the ion open houses last year and they say the fare boxes support it but it won't be available for launch.
