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 carrier at all times while on board.

All of our buses are equipped with an accessible lift which can be used by passengers with limited mobility or who use a mobility aid such as a wheelchair.

Bus Stops

In cases where a transit stop is temporarily inaccessible, people with disabilities will be able to board or exit the bus at the closest available safe location. In determining where a safe location is located, the operator will consider the preference of the person with a disability. However the final determination of the safe location will be determined by the operator.

Priority Seating

Priority Seating is for the use of passengers with a disability. Each bus is equipped with a designated location found at the rear of the bus for persons using a wheelchair or other mobility aid. If you do not have a disability or mobility challenge, please vacate these seats when asked by a person with a disability or the bus operator.

Service Animals

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.

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
