All of our buses are equipped with an accessible wheelchair lift which can be used by passengers with limited mobility or who use a mobility aid such as a wheelchair.
Mobility scooters are welcome aboard. In order to use the accessible lift, the scooter must fit into a 48-inch (1.22m) long by 36-inch (91cm) wide space.
If able, we encourage scooter passengers to transfer to a fixed seat when on the vehicle, as some scooter designs cannot be secured firmly enough to carry a seated passenger when the bus is in motion.

Huron Shores Area Transit is made possible through an Ontario Community Transportation Grant (CTA program) of $2-million. The grant program supports local and intercommunity bus service in areas unserved or underserved by public transit, making transit within and between communities a reality. The program will make it more convenient for Ontarians, including seniors, students, youths, persons with disabilities and others to access essential services in their communities, connect with other transportation services, and travel between cities and towns. To learn more about the CT Pilot Program, you can contact the Ministry of Transportation at: 1-800-268-4686 or 416-235-4686 or email: CTProgram@ontario.ca
It took a lot of time and energy to get to the launch date for Huron Shores Area Transit. We are dedicated to optimizing the travel experience for our passengers.
Features being considered for future implementation include:
- Mobile App with real-time data
- Free WiFi
- Flex stops
Please note, the features listed above will not be available at the time of service launch, and we cannot guarantee that they will be in the future. These features are items we are working on.
Huron Shores Area Transit came to be from a grassroots initiative of volunteers and social agency representatives working with our local municipalities (Lambton Shores, Kettle & Stony Point First Nation, Bluewater, South Huron and North Middlesex).
The service itself is provided by Voyago. Voyago helps many Ontario communities sustain a viable local transit service.
