ParkBus Stops on the Bruce

Regional | by Matt Villeneuve  

Bus service is intended for people looking to camp, hike, cycle or simply walk.

Busloads of tourists from Toronto are expected to visit the region this summer via ParkBus, a non-for-profit motor-coach company.

They have just added shuttle service to the Bruce Peninsula, with confirmed stops in Lions Head, Cyprus Lake and Tobermory.

Co-founder of ParkBus, Boris Issaev, tells Bayshore Broadcasting News Wiarton will soon be added to the list, pending the Ministry of Transportation's approval.

There are NO plans to add an Owen Sound stop, as Issaev doesn't want the company to resemble 'Greyhound'.

He says ParkBus isn't a tour operator and therefore doesn't arrange accommodations for travellers.

The service is intended for people looking to camp, hike, cycle or simply walk about the area for a weekend.

Issaev is expecting roughly 500 travellers will take advantage of the service this season, noting that number is projected to grow.

The first of five scheduled trips to the peninsula leaves Toronto on May 18th.

Other 'runs' are set for July 26th, as well as August 3rd, 9th and 11th.

Tickets are 85-dollars for adults and half that for kids.

ParkBus will arrive at the beginning of the weekend -- on Friday or Saturday -- returning to retrieve passengers on Sunday or Monday and bring them back to Toronto.

They are non-for-profit company operated by Transportation Options Ontario, who are dedicated to developing sustainable tourism within the province.
