Transit Improvements and Fare Changes
Transit Windsor is making improvements to service and convenience in 2023 through the introduction of a new route, the 418X Express.
The 418X will begin service on June 26, 2023, and will provide a direct link from the East End Terminal at Tecumseh Mall to the West End Terminal at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare while also providing service to both the main and downtown campuses of the University of Windsor. The 418X is a limited-stop route that provides a faster journey along the Tecumseh-College-Sandwich corridor and provides convenient connections with most other Transit Windsor routes.
The 418X is the first of many council approved enhancements to come from the 2023 Transit Windsor Service Plan, which includes expanded service across the city.
“Transit Windsor is continually improving the riding experience for our customers, and the introduction of the 418X is a big step in the transformation of the Transit Windsor system and the expansion of our service,” said Executive Director Tyson Cragg.
Along with the service improvements, Transit is also increasing fares as of Saturday, July 1, 2023.
As approved during the 2023 budget process, City service fares, as well as those for LaSalle (Route 25) service will increase by 2%. A full list of pricing can be found at TransitWindsor.ca.
Customers may purchase smart media until June 30, 2023, at the current prices.
The sales office at Windsor International Transit Terminal, 300 Chatham Street West, is open 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Please visit TransitWindsor.ca for a complete listing of where you can purchase smart media.
Now, more than ever, the best way to save money is by purchasing a Smart Pass or Ride Card. It’s convenient, and you’ll never have to worry about carrying exact change.
