Say Yes...To the Kawartha Lakes Rural Shopping Bus

Submitted by Michael Bryant

In the City of Kawartha Lakes, we have only Lindsay Transit Bus Service and it is the only Public Transit and just in Lindsay. The City of Kawartha Lakes has decided that there will be no expansion for Rural Transit in their Plan until possibly 2023. This is a terrible isolation for all individuals not affording cars.

Our Independent Rural Transportation Advocates developed the White Lightning Shopping Bus that includes advertising and support of local businesses in Kawartha Lakes. It will connect the communities of Lindsay, Fenelon Falls, Bobcaygeon, Little Britain, Cameron, Omemee, Bethany and Pontypool for Adults, Seniors, Teens, Families and Handicapped Residents to have an enjoyable day throughout our city.

This is a FREE SERVICE each Tuesday starting in April 2019, it will have pick-up points and loop around communities for shopping, tourism, medical stops and family visits. It is designed to add to Economic Development to small communities as well.

The White Lightning Shopping Bus is supported by Chambers of Commerce in Lindsay, Bobcaygeon and Fenelon Falls and operated by private company White Lightning Bus Tours, in Little Britain.
