Grey Transit Route Buses Now Equipped with Bike Racks

All Grey Transit Route (GTR) buses are now fully equipped with bike racks. Passengers riding with the GTR can bring their bicycle on the bus to continue their journey by bike, or further explore the area at their destination.

The new racks are easy to load and unload, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis for passengers. Conventional two-wheeled bicycles are allowed on the bike racks. Tricycles and motorized bicycles are not permitted, nor are bikes with child carriers or trailers. Children’s bikes that do not fit properly on the rack may be brought on board the bus, if space permits.

GTR operates 6 routes in total throughout Grey, Bruce and Dufferin County. Permanent routes include service along Highway 10 between Owen Sound and Orangeville, Highway 26 from Owen Sound to Town of Blue Mountains, Highway 6 between Owen Sound and Wiarton, Grey Road 4 between Flesherton and Walkerton. During the summer months, the Highway 6 route continues from Wiarton on to Sauble Beach, and starting in July until December, weekend service will be offered between Dundalk, Shelburne and Orangeville.

We are excited to see the GTR service diversify and provide more opportunities for passengers, whether they ride for business or pleasure” says Bryan Plumstead, manager of Tourism. “This is a positive step for active transportation and for tourism in our area”.
