Summer Bus

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 the first Saturday in July and continues to the end of the Labour Day long weekend. Saturday, It offers four return trips each Saturday and Sunday, scheduled between 9:30 am and 9:30 pm.

This is an express bus with only TWO stops. It leaves London Transit stop #705 for Sobeys Plaza, Grand Bend as a non-stop, direct run.  There are no stops at any other bus stops along the route.

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 Cash Only, 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.

The regular Route 2 bus will still be in operation as per the schedule.
