Leamington Transit

Leamington Transit LogoThe Municipality of Leamington's transit bus service serves the urban area of Leamington. The transit service is operated by Switzer-Carty Transportation.

For the convenience and comfort of our riders, our buses meet the Ontario standards of accessible vehicles and have the following features:

  • A ramp at the doorway that may extend on request and has space and anchors points for two wheelchairs
  • A kneeling feature that lowers the step height of the bus
  • Air ride suspension to provide a smooth ride for passengers
  • Air conditioning and heating
  • Bike racks
  • Cushioned cloth seats
  • Verbal announcements of next stops

Route and Schedule

There is one regular route that passes through residential, commercial, and industrial areas of the Municipality. The route has been laid out to allow the most passengers to only need to ride a portion of the route to get to and from their destinations.

There is a "Erie Summer Route" that runs up and down Erie Street between Wilkinson Drive and the Marina/Waterfront area. This route operates Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays from the Friday before Victoria Day up to and including Labour Day.

Please view the Leamington Transit Schedule and Map to see details of the routes.

Transfers

On days when both the regular route and summer route are operating, transfers are possible from one route to the other route at designated transfer points as shown on the Leamington Transit Schedule and Map

  • A transfer must be requested when you pay for your fare on the first bus and can only be used by the person to whom it was issued. 
  • Transfers will not be issued to passengers boarding with a previously issued transfer.
  • Transfers are not to be used to board a bus on the same route.
  • The transfer ticket is valid for 2 hours from the date and time punched on the transfer ticket by the bus operator.

Please note that the schedule times are estimated only and the buses may be running late due to traffic conditions along the route. Buses on the intersecting bus route will not wait at transfer points for late buses so transfers are not guaranteed and you may need to wait for the next scheduled bus if a transfer is missed.

Lost and Found

All articles found on the Leamington Transit buses are taken to the lost and found at Switzer-Carty Transportation Inc. located at 10 Seacliff Drive East in Leamington. Items will be retained for 60 days and then disposed of.
