Miss the East and West Bank routes? So did we!

This past September, the TCSA took over the administration of Transit at Trent University from the Office of Student Affairs. Improvements were made immediately, such as the Transit Pass extension through the summer, but we want to make more, and we need your help! This is your opportunity to let us know how to improve the transportation service to meet the needs of Trent Students Not only will completing the survey help us construct a better service, but you will have a chance to win a new BlackBerry PlayBook! Responses will be collected until March 16th, 2012. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/tcsatransitsurvey
For updates on weather interruptions to bus service, please visit the main page at trentu.ca.
In order to address accessibility for Trent students, staff and faculty, the TCSA and Peterborough Transit were asked to incorporate into the East Bank service a stop at the DNA Building. Beginning January 7th, with the weekend service, the new DNA stop will come into effect. The new service route will see the bus travel past Pioneer Road (current route to Gzowski) and continue instead on Nassau Mills Road to East Bank Drive (Otonabee College entrance). The bus will continue along this road up to the DNA Building stop before continuing to Gzowski.
This accommodation will increase the time of the outbound trip (terminal to Trent) by 5 minutes. This increase in trip time means we can no longer run a nice "every twenty minutes" schedule for the East Bank, so please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the new schedule. The addition of a DNA stop impacts the East Bank, West Bank (late night buses), weekend and holiday schedules. All new schedules are now posted at trentcentral.ca. Please feel free to email email@example.com with any questions or concerns with this new service and we will address and adjust things where possible. We ask for your patience with the new schedules as we work out conflicts that may arise.
Please note that the TCSA office will be closed starting December 23rd and will reopen on January 9th. Thank you everyone, and have a fantastic holiday! Read more...
