Public Transit

There are numerous ways to reach and travel around the City of Owen Sound, including:

Owen Sound and area residents enjoy an efficient transportation network that provides both Conventional and Specialized Transit service within the City of Owen Sound.

  • Conventional Transit service is a four (4) route system operating during the day Monday through Saturday. All four routes provide ½ hour service from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
  • Mobility Transit provides residents with a door-to-door service which is specifically designed for residents with physical mobility limitations that restrict their ability to use the Conventional transit service.

The bus runs daily, seven days a week including statutory holidays (excluding Christmas Day) from the Owen Sound Transit Terminal to the Guelph Transit Terminal with stops in between in Chatsworth, Williamsford, Durham, Mount Forest, Arthur, Fergus and Elora.
