Daily shuttle service to Ottawa

Wubs Transit, located on Dawley Drive in Winchester, is considering the development of a Daily Line Route (shuttle bus) from Morrisburg to Ottawa.

Presently the company has a route, which includes multiple stops in both Chesterville, Winchester and, of course, Ottawa. This route will not change.

Due to previous inquiries, Wubs Transit has decided to “see what kind of interest is out there” for a shuttle from Morrisburg to Ottawa, reported Nanda Wubs.

She went on to say that the company would like to “develop a route that works for the largest amount of people.”

Wubs Transit offers monthly passes, single trip tickets, passes for one-way trips, and a book of 10 one-way tickets.

Aside from being the best rate, a monthly pass also includes access to OC Transpo. In fact, the pass itself is an OC Transpo pass that includes the Daily Line Run.

The monthly passes for Chesterville and Winchester are $258 per month and $230 per month, respectively.

The rate for Morrisburg would be comparable, the final number depending on the stops involved.

In order to develop the best route possible, Wubs Transit is looking for feedback from those interested in the shuttle.

What central location would work for pick-ups in Morrisburg?

Are there any pick-up points outside the village of Morrisburg that need to be considered?

What locations in Ottawa are needed?

For those interested in having a shuttle bus from Morrisburg to Ottawa, please phone the Wubs Transit office at 613-774-6618. Or, visit their website at www.wubs.ca and click on “commuter shuttles.” There will be a link on this page for inquiries and/or suggestions for a Morrisburg shuttle bus service.
