Routes 308, 501, and 502 Service Reliability Tweaks

Route 308:​
DRT strives to accommodate our customers connecting to/from GO trains as best as we can. New GO Train schedules have prevented Route 308 from meeting both eastbound train arrivals and westbound departures in the afternoon.

Effective Monday July 11, 2016, Route 308C will operate directly on Gordon St. to Victoria St. and to Whitby Station. Three trips will be offered departing the Ontario Shores Centre at 16:26, 16:56and 17:16, arriving at Whitby Station 16:33, 17:03 and 17:23, respectively.
