What’s New

Route 4 Survey

At the North Middlesex Council Meeting on March 15, 2023 a question arose as to whether the Route 4 bus stops and route could be changed. The short answer is – possibly if it is within our ability to do so. But first – we want to find out from North Middlesex residents and riders what changes, if any, would be beneficial. 

Take the Survey! Completed surveys are entered to win one of ten $25 Smart Cards, the equivalent of 5 FREE rides!

Installation of Security Cameras

You may have seen the news from Toronto over the last couple of months about the Toronto Transit Commission and the assaults and other issues that have occurred. 

While we do not have those big city issues here, and Huron Shores Area Transit has never had an incident of that nature, we want to make sure our transit system is safe and welcoming for everyone.

We recently purchased security cameras for the buses that will focus on the passenger compartment area of the bus.

Our new security cameras record video and sound. The digital recordings are automatically erased by being overwritten every seven days. In the event an incident did happen on one of our buses and became part of a police investigation, the digital recording would be shared with police for only those purposes.

For more information, review the full Surveillance Policy on this website.

Does my support person have to pay?

A support person may travel free of charge when accompanying someone with a disability who has an identified medical requirement for support. A support person is an adult who accompanies a person with a permanent disability to assist with services that are not provided by the employees of that service.

Are pets allowed on the bus?

Passengers with disabilities who are accompanied by their service animal are welcome on our vehicles. Service animals must be clearly identified (such as by a vest or harness), and must be in the care and control of their owner at all times.

All other pets must be in a pet carrier at all times while on board.

Can I bring my bike?

At this time we cannot guarantee that the bus picking you up has a bike rack. Although our service contractor has been working hard on this issue, we are experiencing the pandemic’s affect on product availability and shipping timelines.
