Part of Oakville Transit Route 14/14A changes to “Home to Hub”

Oakville Transit

The Reynolds Street portion of Route 14/14A is being replaced with Oakville Transit’s on-demand service Home to Hub. The on-demand service will provide connections to the Oakville GO station or downtown Oakville (Church and Dunn).

Residents can also use Route 11 which operates Monday to Friday every 30 minutes during peak and every 60 minutes in off-peak, which travels along Reynolds to MacDonald (one block north of Wyndham Manor). Read on to learn more about Home to Hub; Oakville’s on demand service.

This change provides transit access on weekends for more parts of the Ward 3.  Home to Hub is more cost-effective than full transit routes and we hope it will expand to more parts of the Ward in 2020.
