Intercity Transit

Intercity transport is provided by a number of companies and agencies. The Charles Street Terminal in Kitchener is the major intercity bus terminal.

GO Transit

GO Transit provides regular bus service from UW, WLU, Kitchener, and Cambridge SmartCentres to Mississauga Square One (Route 25), from which there are:

  • Weekday peak buses every 10-20 minutes to Yorkdale, Sheppard, and Finch.
  • Weekday 15-20 minute service (and some Sunday service) to Bramalea and York University.
  • Buses every half-hour (every hour Sundays) to Union Station. This is all-day service except weekday peak.

During that weekday peak there are two buses (Route 25A) that connect with the GO train at Milton instead.

GO operates two weekday morning peak trains along the Kitchener line toward Toronto, and two afternoon peak trains back. It also has three Route 31 “train-buses” that connect with the Kitchener line at Bramalea. This service is all from the Kitchener VIA rail station.

You can view the GO Transit schedules or use Google Transit to see if GO Transit works for you.
