Home to Hub

A shared, on-demand transit service that uses smaller capacity buses.

Home to Hub conveniently picks you up/drops you off at the end of your driveway to get you to and from the closest transit hub where you can connect with regular fixed route transit service.

Definition of a Late Cancellation

Any booked trip cancelled less than two hours before the scheduled pick-up time.

Definition of Cancel-at-the-Door

Any booked trip cancelled after the vehicle has arrived at the pick-up location.

Definition of a No-Show

Any trip booked where the vehicle arrives at the pick-up location and the customer is not there.

A violation occurs and is tracked when a customer has more than three incidents per month. This can happen through a combination of Late Cancellations, Cancel-at-the Door or No-Shows.

Written warnings will be issued for infractions of Oakville Transit policies. Additional incidents will result in a review of Home to Hub service eligibility and could lead to suspension of service.
