Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Northumberland County, together with Metrolinx and Hop In Technologies, is preparing to launch Commuter Connect – a pilot shuttle service connecting the communities of Northumberland with each other and with GO Transit service in Oshawa.

Read our media release from April 2022 announcing this project.

Background

Commuter Connect will increase flexibility and choice for Northumberland residents in their local commute, while also connecting them to the GO network.

This service will launch in September 2022. It will operate across Northumberland, from Trent Hills to Brighton to Port Hope and stops in between, and with shuttle service to the GO.

Over a 12-month period, partners will collect and analyze data on ridership. This data will help to further define the extent of local need, interest and opportunity for increased transit options for local commutes - and between Northumberland County and the Oshawa GO.

Building Commuter Connect routes

To help guide decisions about the design of Commuter Connect routes to ensure they best meet the community’s needs, we are inviting all residents to participate in a short survey.

Why completing the survey matters

Data gathered will help us to:

  • Understand resident travel behaviours
  • Identify transportation barriers, gaps and solutions
  • Make sound transportation investments in our community

How do you commute in Northumberland?

Complete a short survey to tell us how you get to work, what transportation challenges you currently face, and what transit schedules would be most useful, so we can better connect our community. Share your thoughts by August 17, 2022:
