Licence 2 Ride


The City’s Licence 2 Ride is offered to youth aged 12–16 and provides the chance to ride for free on Barrie Transit & play for free at the City's three main recreation centres.

The Licence 2 Ride (L2R) Pass is intended to build future transit riders through education and familiarity of the system, along with motivating a healthy lifestyle by providing access to Recreation facilities and programming. The L2R pass permits free unlimited use on Barrie Transit and access to drop-in recreation programs at any of the three main recreation centres.

Oh the Places You'll Go!

Here’s a list of some of the places licence-holders can explore and activities they can enjoy with their Licence 2 Ride, which gets them free rides on all Barrie Transit routes, Transit ON Demand and Specialized Transit for registered clients. The Licence 2 Ride must be clearly displayed to the bus driver when boarding Barrie Transit.

*To access the fitness centre, applicants must be 13+ and complete a fitness centre orientation. Please download the Fitness Orientation Information & Consent Form and call or visit the recreation centre to book an orientation.
