Calling all daytrippers and beach lovers!
Beach-goers take your summer to the next level and enjoy a hassle-free bus ride from London to Grand Bend and back every Saturday and Sunday in July and August.
The Summer Bus service begins Saturday, July 1 and ends Monday, September 3, with four return trips scheduled between 9:30 am and 9:30 pm. The extended schedule will give you lots of time to enjoy the beaches of Grand Bend, Pinery Provincial Park and Port Blake Day Park.
This is an express bus with only TWO stops. It leaves London Transit stop #705 for Sobeys Plaza, Grand Bend with a non-stop, direct run, meaning it will not stop at any of our other bus stops on its way to the Sobeys Plaza stop in Grand Bend.
We recommend being at the bus stop at last 5 minutes prior to pick-up time. You will need exact cash fare, as drivers cannot make change and the bus will not be equipped with a Smart Card reader (Sorry no Smart Cards accepted on the Summer Bus).
Important note: The summer bus is NOT accessible, it has no wheelchair lift. Only our regular buses have wheelchair lifts.
Our regular Route 2 bus will still be running; the Summer Bus is an additional bus added just for the summer.
