The Town of Yarmouth announced the launch of public Transit Service commencing Monday, February 1, 2016.

The service will run Monday to Friday from 7:00am to 7:00pm and Saturday from 8:00am to 6:00pm (excluding holidays) with sixteen (16) scheduled stops. The route starts at Sara Corning Way, stopping during the 45 minutes loop at the Yarmouth Regional Hospital, NSCC Burridge Campus, Yarmouth Mall, Walmart, Superstore, Canadian Tire and ending at the Mariners Centre.

The Town’s 14 passenger Transit Bus manufactured by Crestline Coach Ltd, Montreal, Quebec, is a low floor accessible vehicle with passenger front load bicycle rack and a quick release wheel chair ramp, ideally suited for the town’s active and aging population.

Integrated into the Town’s Transit System is Ontario based, BEA Transit Solutions’ Smart Card Fare Technology with a twenty-first century approach to Transit solutions. The Town of Yarmouth is one of the first transit providers in the Atlantic provinces to offer Smart Card Fare Technology, making it convenient for Transit riders to purchase a pass anywhere and at anytime.

Yarmouth transit passengers have two convenient options to purchase their fare. They can purchase passes from a number of retailers located along the transit route, for limited time passes (day and week), or at Town Hall, Main Floor Reception, to purchase limited time passes and Smart Reloadable Card Passes (month and year). Alternatively, cash fares of $2 are accepted.

Passengers will be able to ride the service unlimited for the designated time on the pass. Customers who have purchased a Smart Reloadable Card Pass and registered the card may also reload their pass from the comfort of their home by either calling Town Hall Main Floor Reception or online from the Town website.

The costs of the passes are per day $3, per week $15, monthly $50 and yearly $500 with HST included.

To find out more information on the Transit Route, Guidelines, Retailer location and FAQs and to download a transit brochures go to Transit Service. Brochures can also be picked up at Town Hall and retail locations starting January 25, 2016.
