LTGO On-Demand Transit

Welcome to LTGO On-Demand Transit

Say hello to a new way of getting around Leamington!

The Municipality of Leamington has launched LTGO on-demand transit service which replaced its previous fixed-route service.  

The LTGO on-demand service differs from conventional transit in that there is no fixed route or schedule, and buses are dispatched on a request-basis. This means more flexibility for our customers as they can book a ride when it’s most convenient for them.

Buses are only dispatched when and where they are needed, considering the shortest possible route. Getting from point A to point B is faster, easier and better for the environment.
