Oakville Transit services to Sheridan College in the event of labour disruption

Thursday, October 12, 2017

This notice outlines the Oakville Transit contingency plan in the event of a strike.

The union representing faculty at Ontario’s 24 public colleges (including Sheridan College) has set a strike deadline of 12:01 a.m. on October 16.

In order to minimize delays to our service resulting from picket line activity, Oakville Transit will not be providing service directly onto the campus during the strike.  Students and visitors to the Sheridan campus will be picked up and dropped off at transit stops on Trafalgar Road and/or White Oaks Boulevard.  This will remain in effect for the duration of any strike.

Oakville Transit’s care-A-van service will be allowed to cross any picket line and as such will continue to provide door to door service to the campus.

The following bus routes will be impacted in the event of a strike.

Routes 1 and 24 will travel along Trafalgar Road with stops in both directions at Trafalgar Road and Ceremonial Drive.  Temporary stop will be in place northbound on Trafalgar at Ceremonial.

Route 5 will not travel to Ceremonial Drive. It will operate on Trafalgar Road to White Oaks Boulevard and then return to Trafalgar in both directions.  The nearest stops to the Sheridan Campus will be at White Oaks Boulevard and Marlborough Court.

Route 6 will travel south on Trafalgar Road, servicing the bus stop at Trafalgar Road and Ceremonial Drive. It will then travel east on Marlborough, north on White Oaks, and north on Trafalgar Road to Upper Middle Road.

Detour route maps for Routes 1, 5, 6 and 24 in the event of a strike.
