CORNWALL, Ontario – As of Wednesday, Oct. 2, Cornwall Transit has implemented an on demand bus service for parts of the Riverdale area.

The Brookdale number 3 bus will be travelling through Riverdale from 8:15 p.m. to 11:15 p.m. on an hourly basis from Monday to Friday and from 6:15 p.m. to 11:15 p.m. on an hourly basis on Saturdays.

Len Tapp, Division Manager for Cornwall Transit said that the project began with a request from students travelling to and from St. Lawrence College.

“We thought we would try this out and see if we could build ridership,” he said. “The route would cover what we believe needs to be covered.”

The route does not travel throughout the whole of Riverdale, but will travel down Second St. up Robertson Ave., across Queen St. to Westmorland Ave, then back along Second St.

Tapp said that so far, around a half-dozen people have used the on demand service, some of whom take night classes at the college.

“We will run it until the end of the year and see how it goes,” he said

For on demand pick-ups, please call Cornwall Transit at 613-930-2636.
