Grey Transit Route now fare free on summer weekends

Starting the May long weekend, passengers can ride the Grey Transit Route (GTR) at no cost on weekends throughout the summer on all routes. Riders traveling on Saturdays or Sundays between May 20 and September 3 will not be required to pay to ride the GTR but are still encouraged to book their rides in advance.

The GTR provides the 100,000+ residents of Grey County with a dependable, inexpensive transportation option for travelling within communities and connecting to other transit lines. Our summer program will increase access to the service and encourage residents and visitors to explore alternate travel options while decreasing car traffic in popular areas.  

“We’re excited to be able to offer fare free weekends this summer,” said Stephanie Stewart, Community Transportation Manager. “With so many summer events, festivals, and activities in our communities, this provides a great opportunity for our residents to explore in their own backyard.”

The GTR is your connection to summer fun in Grey County, with route 5 beginning summer service to Sauble Beach starting May 20. In addition, a stop in Craigleith will be returning to Route 4 as of June 3. 

A reminder that GTR accepts walk-on passengers, but we recommend that you book your ride in advance to ensure a seat. Call 1-226-910-1001 to reserve your seat, or book online at
