Those times should at least match the first and last train into Barrie. 

The challenge is that the last departures clear out by approximately 6:30 PM. Take for example Route 2, the last departure from Allandale Waterfront to Wasaga Beach is 6:30 PM and if coming from Toronto, only the 4:38 PM departure from Union would make it close enough to connect to that departure. Assuming there are no delays.

Route 5 Bradford to Alliston, the last departure from Bradford Go is 5:20 PM which is a challenge. I would think that it would be at least 5:20 AM until at least 7:20 PM in the evening. To at least cover all trips running from Bradford Go Station. 

I do agree that they should ensure the times match the first and last departures during the peak period at least if connecting from the Go Train. A lot has changed from the introduction of Route 1 just over 2 years ago. Covering the gaps that aren't served by the intercity carriers or with limited departures requiring planning ahead of time.

Spotted 1826 on the Georgian Route (Memorial/Glencoe @5:56 PM)

Wrong thread. Orillia Transit has a dedicated thread right here.

FYI: Orillia Transit operates only six buses because of the small network. It isn't that hard to spot new buses considering that pretty much any bus (Nova LFS, D40LF or XD40) can be in revenue service.

This thread is for Simcoe County Linx which is the intercity transit for Simcoe County.

Just read the article. The challenge is having to do the loop around Port McNicoll which reroutes off Highway 12. Trying to maintain a headway of 60 minutes with two buses. Especially adding this section may require a third bus which adds to the cost and a schedule rewrite. On top of people who may want to transfer onto a bus connecting to Barrie via Georgian College or RVH.

That can be difficult noting the Route 3 runs every 50 minutes versus Route 1 which operates every hour. Based on regular scheduled times.
