Transit Service in Essa

The Township of Essa offers transit service connecting Borden and Angus to the City of Barrie, from Monday to Friday, on the 90A and 90B Bus Routes.  For a reasonable fare, the bus service takes residents directly to the Allandale GO Station in Barrie.  A transfer obtained from the Bus Operator of the Angus-Borden Bus will get you on to the Barrie Transit system to get to your destination within Barrie.

If you are looking to board the bus to take you to your destination, look for the blue and white signs that have been strategically placed within Borden and Angus to identify where the bus stops are in your area. For a map of the Bus Service in Angus and Borden, please refer to the map below:

Planning a Barrie Transit trip just got easier with www.myridebarrie.ca

Barrie Transit has added a new online feature to help riders plan their trip around the city (and out to Angus/Base Borden). The live bus map, available at barrie.ca/Transit has been upgraded to be more user-friendly and reliable.

The new tool is mobile friendly and available through the City’s app, Ping Street which can be downloaded for free on all mobile devices. Riders can use the tool to plan a trip anywhere in the City (or out to Angus/Base Borden) or see their bus in real time.

The upgraded system will provide riders with more accurate information to help them better plan their transit trips.

Bus Passes

Riders can pay for a single ride ticket when boarding the bus, or monthly transit passes can be purchased at the Angus Branch of the Essa Public Library. 

For more information on bus fares please refer to page 19 of our Fee Schedule
