 Accessible Transit

All LTC conventional service routes are now designated "Accessible". This means that every scheduled bus on each route will be a low-floor accessible bus. Designating LTC regular service routes as accessible means that we can now welcome new passengers who previously were unable to board our buses due to the existence of front steps and the absence of wheelchair and scooter securement facilities. The low floor bus creates greater opportunity for access to regular transit for many more people. Our Operators are trained to recognize the need for, offer and provide assistance when necessary within the boarding and securement areas of the bus.


  • Passengers must be able to get themselves to and from the bus stop.
  • Crowded buses can occur in "rush hours", from 7:00-9:00am and 3:30-6:00pm Monday to Friday.
  • Low floor buses have a maximum of two wheelchair/scooter securement areas.
For further information please call 519-451-1347.

 Transit Tips
For more complete information on using London Transit's conventional service, please see the publication "Get On Board". It is full of good information and illustrations aimed at introducing people to using our service.
Check your schedule or call 519-451-1347 before you go to the bus stop. Be at your bus stop a couple of minutes before your scheduled bus arrival.

Have your cash, ticket or pass ready. Remember Operators do not make change, exact fare is required.

Please make sure that you are at a bus stop, near the curb, and in plain view of the Operator. Avoid standing inside a shelter or doorway as the bus approaches because the Operator may not see you and could pass the stop.

Check the bus sign to ensure you are getting on the correct bus. If you are unsure, please tell the Operator exactly where you wish to go and ask for help.

When getting on or off the bus please use the hand rails especially if the bus is moving.

Ring the bell to get off. Most buses have a bell chord above the windows, some have a yellow push bar. Please give the Operator sufficient time to stop safely.

Walk to the back doors to get off. The Operator will activate the door. You must either step down onto the first step or gently push and hold the hand-bar to open the door. The door will close automatically after you have stepped off.

We request that if possible, buggies/strollers be folded for the comfort and convenience of all passengers.
