Avoid parking woes and fees, get free shuttle to waterfront

The City of Pickering has announced that a free shuttle service is coming to its waterfront area.

Durham Region Transit Route #100 has been designed to provide convenient access for residents and visitors to Pickering’s waterfront. The services, slated to commence on June 29, will operate weekends and statutory holidays, including July 1, August 5, and September 2, to enhance accessibility and promote recreational activities, said a city statement.

The shuttle will run every 30 minutes. The first shuttle will depart from Liverpool and Kingston Road, and travel southbound to Pickering Waterfront starting at 10:13 am, with subsequent departures occurring at half-hour intervals until the final trip concludes at 6:58 pm. For northbound travel, the first departure from Pickering Waterfront will be at 10:28 am, also running every 30 minutes, until the last trip at 6:58 pm. Connecting trips will require a paid fare, it added.

“The City of Pickering is proud to partner with Durham Region Transit in launching this brand new Free Waterfront Shuttle Service to our Nautical Village,” said Mayor Kevin Ashe.  “This service will provide convenient and direct transportation for residents and visitors to our waterfront, allowing them to experience and enjoy the shimmering jewel of our city without needing to drive and find available parking at this extremely popular summer destination.”

The city charges a parking fee along its waterfront.
