uLinc is a transit system that operates three routes within the Town of Lincoln, Ontario. The system started November 13th, 2017 and is operated by The BTS Network.

History

In July 2017, planners in Lincoln unveiled details for a transit system. The two routes that were planned targeted seniors residences, community hubs and commercial areas. They would run Monday to Friday, with service on Saturday from June to October.[1] A third route, operating on King Street as far as 19th Street was soon added. The public was given a preview of the buses on November 7, 2017.[2] On November 13, 2017, uLinc was launched as a year-long pilot project.[3]

Routes

uLinc routes operate on an infrequent schedule, with one bus operating all runs, interlining with each other through the course of the day.

All routes converge at the Fleming Centre, while route 2 (Ontario-Bartlett) connects with GO Transit services at the assigned Go stop north of the Fleming Centre.

Hours of service are Monday to Friday from 7:30am to 5:30pm. [4]
