How do you get from A to B? It’s no secret that combustion engines in cars and trucks are a major source of greenhouse gases. We want to encourage a broad range of options: ride-shares, bicycles, public transit and walking.
For short distances dust off your bicycle, scooter, or skateboard! And our own two feet are terrific ways to get around, run local errands and visit friends and neighbours. Challenge yourself to swap out the car for something more sustainable (and healthier!)
For longer distances, we’re big fans of public and shared transportation. Stratford Transit for in-town trips, PC Connect for getting around Perth County. The Stratford Direct bus for Toronto-Stratford connections (during the Festival Theatre season). And we encourage folks to carpool—it’s an old standby, but it works! And check out GO Transit and Via Rail schedule for more information on trains to and from Stratford.
Cycle Stratford is devoted to cycling for recreation and health. Created in 2013 as a not for profit corporation, we focus on safe, recreational bicycle riding; fellowship and good sportsmanship; bike safety and maintenance; advocacy: cycle lanes and paths, safe riding areas, appropriate signage and related infrastructure; and cycling events organized by the club and by other clubs.
City of Stratford Transit and Parallel Transit provide an affordable and convenient alternative to driving within the City on regularly scheduled transit routes. Read further to learn about our rates, schedules, Parallel Transit, and special services.
PC Connect is a public transit service that provides transportation throughout Perth County, Stratford, St. Marys, Kitchener/Waterloo and London. PC Connect provides affordable and accessible service on weekdays and Saturdays, and provides connections to other services such as GO Transit.
Our vision is for a community engaged in creative, bold responses to the global climate crisis and committed to a carbon-neutral Perth County by 2040.
We focus on supporting individuals and advocating for community-wide change in key areas of meaningful climate action: green transportation, net zero buildings, waste reduction, and biodiversity protection.
