County to celebrate new LINX Transit routes and Metrolinx milestone announcement

 

Midhurst/August 7, 2019 – Media are invited to attend the official launch of two new LINX Transit Service routes and the assumption of operations of an existing connecting link between Collingwood and Wasaga Beach on Tuesday, August 13 at 10 a.m. at the County of Simcoe Administration Centre in Midhurst during a break at the County Council and Committee of the Whole.

This event also recognizes the success of the Greater Metrolinx Contract, which offers smaller purchasing groups, including the County of Simcoe, an opportunity for cost savings and efficiencies that would not otherwise be possible under smaller contracts. The event celebrates the acquisition of the 1,500th bus, which is one of the new LINX buses, through this beneficial and cost-effective agreement between Metrolinx and Alexander Dennis (a bus manufacturing company).
