Q. What is Trans-Cab and how does it work?

Trans-Cab is a system used by Peterborough Transit to service certain areas of the City where the bus does not run. It allows you to use a cab to and from special Trans-Cab stops for a flat fare.

Adapted from the Peterborough Transit Map:

Trans-Cab to the bus:
1. Check the transit map to see if you are in a Trans-Cab zone.
2. Call 705-748-4443 at least an hour before you need to be at the stop.
3. A taxi will come pick you up and drop you to the designated Trans-Cab stop.
4. Trans-Cab fare is $3.00 which includes one way taxi and bus ride. You'll pay the taxi driver.

Trans-Cab from the bus:
1. Board the bus that goes to the Trans-Cab zone you are going to.
2. Inform the driver as you pay your fare that you need a Trans-Cab.
3. The driver will give you a transfer and radio for the taxi.
4. At your designated Trans-Cab stop, the taxi will be waiting for you to drive you to your destination.
5. The fare is the regular fare + 50 cents and you'll pay on the bus.

You can get a Transit Map from the Downtown Transit Terminal at 190 Simcoe Street or from the Transit One office at 270 George Street North.

Q. Where's the app?

In an attempt to make it accessible to all with the little resources we have, we decided to start with a web-based app (a website that looks and feels like an app). Here's how easy it is to install it on your mobile device, if your browser supports it.

  • Open the browser menu (usually a box with an arrow on Apple devices or three dots on many other devices.
  • Look for and tap on 'Add to Homescreen'
  • Follow the prompts.
If it's supported, you now have a great black logo with a white bus on your homescreen beside all you other apps. Direct access to the web-app anytime you need it.
We will consider native apps (one's you find on app stores) when resources become available.
