How can I get a tax credit for using transit?

Barrie Transit cannot replace lost expired passes for income tax purposes. For more on the tax credit for public transit passes, please visit transitpass.ca.

What is the Night Stop program?

The Night Stop program allows passengers who feel it would be more convenient or safer to disembark from the bus closer to their destination than the nearest transit stop. The service is in effect from dusk or 9 p.m. until the end of evening service. Passengers can request the Transit Operator to stop at any safe location(Operator discretion) along a route. Let the transit operator know at least one stop before the location you wish to disembark and leave from the front door.

I left an article on the bus. Does Barrie Transit have a LOST and FOUND area?

All articles found on our buses are processed and will then be taken to the the Lost and Found at the Barrie Transit Terminal, 24 Maple Avenue. Processing can take 1-2 business days, therefore we suggest you contact 705-739-4209 or  transit@barrie.ca first before visiting the Terminal. Hours of operation are M-F 5am-11pm, Sat 5:30am-11pm and Sunday 6am-10pm. Note: due to limited storage space, lost and found items are only held for 30 days.

This service provides transportation from accessible door to accessible door. Riders must be registered to use the Specialized Transit Service. Please visit Accessible Transportation for more information.

Barrie Transit is pleased to provide our community with accessible low floor buses on all our transit routes. Low floor buses have no stairs so boarding is easy, plus they have a ramp and space for two wheelchairs or for people with disabilities who require the use of this space. Our Transit fleet is also equipped with on-board next stop announcement system, which means that each stop is verbally and visually announced through electronic means. Should you require to know the direction or destination of the bus you are boarding please ask the Operator.

Will there ever be an option to pay bus fare with Presto Cards (like there is in the GTA)?

Barrie may be part of it in the future. We will accept PRESTO as a visual pass for free bus travel to the GO train. Plus more direct service to the GO stations under the new route model.
