How To Use Transit

Whether you are wanting to go to work, school, shopping, an appointment, or out for pleasure, Charlottetown Transit can help you get there!

 

We use a color coded system along with a numbering system for easier use with the schedules. Schedules have all departing and arriving times at many locations along all routes.  The route of the bus follows left to right for times & locations

 

Charlottetown Transit operates Monday to Saturday throughout the Charlottetown area. Transit also travels to Cornwall and Stratford locations from Monday to Friday.

 

The winter season is upon us.

Here are some tips that can help make your ride more comfortable.

 

1.   Take an earlier trip.

Buses move only as quickly as traffic allows. If there is snow or ice, consider taking an earlier bus to ensure that you arrive at your destination on time.

 

2.   Play it safe.

Buses may slide on snow as they approach the curb. Stay on the curb until the bus comes to a complete stop.

 

3.   Be visible.

Especially on dark winter mornings, it’s important that you make yourself visible to an approaching bus. Wear light-color clothing. Signal your presence with a small blinker light or flashlight.

 

4.   Step carefully.

Bus steps become slippery from snow. Kick the snow from your shoes before stepping on the bus. Use the handrails and take your time.

 

5.   Dress warmly.

Although the ride will be warm, your trip to and from the bus stop may not be. Put on an extra layer – even a short wait at your stop can be dangerous if you’re not dressed for the weather. 

 

7.   Don’t blame the driver.

If your bus is late, remember that your driver is doing his or her best to make sure you arrive at your destination despite bad road conditions.
