The new Brighton transportation initiative is operated by Quinte Access transportation in conjunction with the Brighton Accessibility Advisory Committee. The inaugural run of the Brighton Transit System will be on Monday February 8, 2016.
The bus service is available to ALL residents, from students to seniors and it allows individuals with disabilities and/or special needs to use the transportation, as all buses are accessible.
The service will operate Monday to Friday with stops within Brighton at:
- Prince Edward Square (plaza behind the LCBO)
- Gosport (Presqu’ile Bay Outfitters)
- Brighton by the Bay (Sandpiper Community Centre)
- Brighton Health Services Centre
- King Edward Park Arena
- No frills
The service will drop off riders at the Trenton Walmart, or behind the Dollartree in downtown Trenton upon request.
Trips within the town of Brighton will be $2 each way and trips between towns will cost $5 each way, which includes one free transfer within the Trenton public transit system.
Trenton residents can also use the service to visit with friends and family in Brighton, or to shop in downtown Brighton.
Residents are asked to call ahead to book a seat, as seating is limited. For more information on the Brighton Transit System, call Quinte Access (613) 392-9640 or visit their website at www.quinteaccess.org
