Grand River Transit – Buses/LRT


Grand River Transit (GRT) provides transit service in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Elmira, St. Jacobs and New Hamburg. The GRT was formed by the Region of Waterloo in 2000, assuming the operations of the former Kitchener Transit and Cambridge Transit. Today the GRT operates more than 50 routes and covers more than 16 million kilometres every year.


GRT operates conventional buses, an express bus network, community and flexible transit routes, and door-to-door transit service for riders with disabilities using specialized vehicles.


GRT’s fleet consists of more than 250 buses and 35 specialized ‘MobilityPLUS’ vehicles. They have more than 2,500 stops across the region.


Rapid Transit


GRT’s service expanded with the construction of a rapid transit network consisting of Bombardier built ION light rail trains and ION bus rapid transit. ION light rail started in June 2019 and runs between Conestoga Station in Waterloo and Fairway Station in Kitchener.
