Free December Kawartha Lakes Bus Rides - Will You Take Free Rides?

Kawartha Lakes Buses Offer Free Rides December 8 - 20 Yet Many Still Unserved! 

City of Kawartha Lakes is offering free bus rides in the Town of Lindsay and also on the Rural Transit from December 8 to December 20, 2014. While they are hoping free rides might help increase shopping in City of Kawartha Lakes, unfortunately routes and times of bus services lack logic and foresight, so it is doubtful free bus rides will increase bus usage over the next few weeks.

City of Kawartha Lakes Transit Announcement

Beginning Monday, December 8 and running until Saturday, December 20, all Lindsay Transit Routes, Limo Specialized Transit and all Rural Routes (Dial-A-Ride) in Kawartha Lakes will be free.
“This is just a little thank you to our loyal ridership and the residents of Kawartha Lakes,” explained Transit Supervisor Enzo Ingribelli. “We want as many residents as possible to be able to take advantage of, and enjoy the various transit services offered here in Kawartha Lakes.” 
 Each December, the City provides free transit services to residents as a Christmas thank you and as an opportunity to attract more people to the services offered locally.
 “This is a great opportunity for our residents to take advantage of the free transit services and be able to support local businesses in Lindsay, Bobcaygeon and Fenelon Falls,” explained Mayor Andy Letham. “Whether it is Lindsay Transit, Limo Specialized Transit or the Rural Route Dial-A-Ride services, the City offers residents a great opportunity to be mobile and get from place to place in Kawartha Lakes. We certainly hope area residents and visitors will take advantage of the free service leading up to the holiday season.” 

 So Why Won't More People Utilize Transit Services?

Simple - Kawartha Lakes Transit services are still not offered during the evening when workers or students can shop! City of Kawartha Lakes has many wonderful Christmas Evening events scheduled, including shopping evenings, however transit hours end at 7pm with the last bus leaving the downtown Lindsay transit hub at 6:00pm.
We placed a call to the Kawartha Lakes Transit Supervisor, and shared concerns of people who have messaged us, and also discussed their disappointment with us in person.
