uLinc - Town of Lincoln Transit Pilot

uLinc - Town of Lincoln's new public transit

Note - the service begins on Nov. 13, 2017. 

The Town of Lincoln is launching a free intra-municipal transit system pilot. Intra-municipal means the bus will run within Lincoln, but will have connection to the GO bus to assist residents with travelling outside of Lincoln.

The pilot is a year-long program that will see an accessible bus for 16 riders service the Town of Lincoln. Additional features of the bus include space for two wheelchairs, a bike rack on the front (for two bicycles), and storage space for portable grocery carts and walkers.

About the Pilot:

This service is FREE during the pilot

The pilot aims to:

  1. Provide mobility to members of the community
  2. Contribute to a higher quality of life, including improved health and community participation rates
  3. Facilitate economic development and support labour workforce development/accessibility
  4. Support future plans for sustainable development and intensification, as outlined in the Town’s Official Plan
  5. Support the introduction of the future GO train service in Lincoln

Duration of Pilot:

  • The pilot’s duration is approximately one year
  • Routes, stops, and frequency will be assessed every 4 months to determine if adjustments are required to meet the needs of the community (within the approved budget)

Transit systems are an important element of complete communities as they promote equity among the town’s residents by ensuring access to reliable, affordable transportation to access town amenities, services, and businesses. Public transit is key to community livability and sustainability.
