Grey Transit Route

Grey Transit Route

Please ensure travel is for essential reasons.

The Grey Transit Route provides a safe, dependable, affordable transportation option for travelling between different communities in our area.

Due to recent changes in regional public health restrictions in some of these communities, the capacity on GTR routes has been limited to five people in order to provide more space between passengers.

Don’t forget, all rides must be booked in advance, and face coverings are required to ride GTR buses.

If you need assistance, do not hesitate to call @ 226-910-1001.

If you are travelling with GTR in the City of Owen Sound, The Town of Blue Mountains or the Town of Orangeville, you must signal the bus to alert the driver that you are waiting for the GTR bus. Otherwise, the driver will assume you are waiting for the local transit system bus.

If the bus approaching is not your GTR bus, take a step back to inform the driver that you are not waiting for that bus.

Please be sure to signal the bus in plenty of time to allow the driver time to safely stop.

Sports Gear

Wearing in-line skates, roller skates, ice skates or use of a skateboard is not allowed on any GTR bus, in bus shelters or at bus terminals. Shirts and shoes must be worn on board buses.

Bicycle Racks

As of July 3rd , all GTR buses will be fully equipped with a bicycle rack. Bring your bicycle on the bus and explore Grey, Bruce, Dufferin County and beyond by bicycle.

The racks are easy to load and unload, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. All passengers of the GTR can use the racks. Children 12 years of age or under must be accompanied by an adult in order to use the bicycle racks.

Bicycle Rack Tips

  • Remove any loose items that are not permanently attached to your bicycle (e.g., water bottles or travel bags).
  • If there are no other bicycles on the rack, use the space closest to the bus.
  • Do not lock your bicycle to the rack. The rack arm is designed to keep your bicycle secure while the bus is in transit.
  • Allow passengers to unload their bicycles before loading yours.
  • Tricycles, motorized bicycles, and bicycles with child carriers or trailers are not allowed on the bicycle rack.

What types of bicycles can go on the racks?

Conventional two-wheeled bicycles are allowed on bicycle racks (tire sizes from 20” to 29”/700c and up to a 44” wheelbase) Tricycles and motorized bicycles are not permitted, nor are bicycles with child carriers or trailers. Children’s bicycles that do not fit on the rack may be brought on board the bus if space permits.

Loading your bicycle onto the rack

  • Once the bus comes to a complete stop, signal to the GTR Bus Operator that you are going to be using the bicycle rack. Wait for the GTR Bus Operator to signal back before you start loading your bicycle.
  • Always load and unload your bicycle from the curbside or front of the bus. Do not use locks or chains to attach your bicycle to the rack.
  • Pull the marked handle up to release and lower the rack.
  • Load your bicycle, placing the front and rear wheels in the appropriate wheel slots. (A label will indicate where to place the front wheel.)
  • After the bicycle is in position, pull the support arm out and place it over the front tire.

Refund Policy

  • Refunds will not be issued for pre-booked rides. If passengers are unable to ride the GTR for the time they have booked, please call 226-910-1001 and you will be issued a credit for a future ride. If the booked ride time has passed and the passenger did not ride the GTR, no refund or credit will be issued.

Tardiness Policy

  • GTR passengers who pay for their ride with cash must notify the GTR prior to their trip departure if they are not able to make their scheduled time. It is important for passengers to notify the GTR if they cannot ride as this will open up the seat for other passengers. Passengers who book a cash ride but do not show up or call ahead to cancel their ride may be asked to book future rides by debit card, credit card or coupon code.
