Do I have to ride all around the Transit loop to get back?
The loop based system offers flexible options for all riders with shorter ride times in most cases. Take a look at your route and see if there is a stop across the road from where you got off.
For example, if you went from Riverdale to the Canada Games Centre (CGC) on Route 2, there is no need to get back on at the CGC and ride the loop all the way through Copper Ridge before heading back to Riverdale. Instead, cross Hamilton Blvd at the CGC and catch the bus at the Hamilton and Valley View stop.
