owen-sound-city-transit-fullThe City has been informed by our transit contractor, First Student Canada that a driver strike is possible and if put into effect, would begin on Thursday, March 1st.

First Student Canada has informed the City of Owen Sound that talks are continuing between both parties. The buses are owned and operated by First Student Canada and the City is not in a position to provide alternate drivers should a strike take place.

In the event of a strike, the City will refund the cost of March Bus Passes already purchased by transit users on a pro-rated basis. The amount given for a refund would be calculated based upon the length of strike action. The City regrets any inconvenience to the travelling public caused by possible strike action and will try to keep transit system users informed of developments as they occur.

Refunds will be available at the point of purchase upon completion of the strike.
