Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to pay extra for this service?
No, regular fares apply although we do recommend use of the Presto farecard.
Do I have to travel at the same time every day?
No. Your scheduled pick up and drop off time can be different. For example, on Mondays you need to arrive at the Uptown Core at 8 a.m., but on Tuesdays you need to arrive at 7 a.m.
You will need to provide us your schedule for the week. We will then pre-book your trips on an ongoing basis. You need only let us know when you are cancelling a trip.

No. You may only need transit service on Monday and Thursday. You can book as many days or as few days per week as you like.

Cancellations must be received 24 hours in advance by phone at 905-337-9222. Please specify you are calling to cancel a home to hub trip.
Where does the bus pick me up and where to I go to wait for my bus?
The bus will pick you up at your driveway of your home on the way to the hub. A signed, designated bus bay at the Uptown Core terminal will be the pick-up location from the hub.
(Please note: drivers will park on street at your driveway. Please be ready and waiting for the driver – the driver will not ring or knock at your door).
What happens if I am not at the designated location at the pick-up time?
If you are not at the designated pick up location at the scheduled time, our drivers will leave without.
What if I need a bus in the middle of the day?
Route 5 operates all day, seven days a week and is available on Dundas Street. Visit the Route 5 Dundas schedules.
Will the regular bus service ever be available in my neighborhood?
Over time, as the communities of North Oakville continue to expand and grow, as the road networks are completed, and as demand grows, conventional fixed route transit service will be introduced into the established North Oakville communities. The “home to hub” service will move to the next developing area.
