Passengers can transfer routes at any point where two routes connect. Passengers must request a transfer when they first board the bus if they require a transfer to continue along their route. When boarding a bus with a transfer, passengers must scan the barcode transfer ticket on the fare box. If, for any reason the fare box scan option is not available, passengers must then present the transfer t the Operator unfolded and date-side up for inspection. Transfers must NOT be placed in the fare box.
A transfer is valid for one hour (60 minutes) from the time of issue and is valid as part of one continuous trip from origin to destination. Please retain your transfer if you need to travel on multiple buses to arrive at your destination . Transfers are non-transferable and have no cash value.
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.

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.
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.
