    Hi, I’m a little confused. The pay one way Oakville transit shuttle goes until 9.30 but the fireworks display starts at 10 PM. How do these people get home after the fire works display?

      Hi Maureen,
      The last shuttle bus leaves the Bronte GO station at 9:30 PM. Busses will be leaving Bronte after the Fireworks. There will be no cost to riders returning to their cars located at the Bronte GO Station.
