All buses will be updated to make audio and visual announcements of current and next stops Kawartha Lakes This Week
LINDSAY – Starting in December, Lindsay Transit is taking important steps towards providing fully accessible services.
City of Kawartha Lakes officials say all conventional buses will be updated to make audio and visual announcements of current and next stops using an automated system and digital signage.
“The new system will comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act to make public transit more accessible to persons with hearing and sight disabilities” explains Bryan Robinson, Director of Public Works. “The City is committed to providing high quality, accessible services that meet the needs of all our residents.”
With the holiday season approaching, Lindsay Transit will be offering free rides from Dec. 12 Dec. 24, and transit passes will be half price for the month of December. Transit services operate from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Saturday, excluding holidays. Transit passes and tokens can be purchased at the Lindsay Municipal Service Centre and Fleming College Bookstore.
