Beach bus back in business


Chatham-Kent’s Beach Bus returns to the roads on Saturday.

Public transit route S1, known as the Beach Bus, will begin operations now that Step One in of the Provincial government’s Roadmap to Reopen is underway.

Municipal officials said the Beach Bus will carry out the remainder of its 2021 summer schedule subject to further restrictions.

Route S1 will operate every Saturday through the Labour Day weekend. It will also operate on Canada Day and the Saturday, Sunday and Monday of the Civic and Labour Day long weekends.

Each operating day will see four round trip departure times from Chatham to Mitchell’s Bay – stopping in Pain Court and Grande Pointe – and four round-trip departure times from Chatham to Erieau – stopping in Charing Cross and Blenheim.

COVID-19 rules remain in place on all transit routes. Masks or face coverings are mandatory.
