The City of St. John’s has engaged Dillon Consulting Limited to assist in a review of transit services, both Metrobus and GoBus, in order to provide direction for transit that best reflects the needs, values, and priorities of the community.

The review is being funded in partnership with the Government of Canada through its Public Transit Infrastructure Fund.

These directions will guide how transit is planned, implemented, and funded over the next five to ten years. We need to hear from you and get your insights and perspective on this review.


What is being reviewed?

This review will evaluate conventional and specialized transit in St. John’s provided by Metrobus and GoBus respectively and will recommend improvements to the frequency of service, route design, operating hours, and passenger amenities that are the most beneficial and cost effective for the residents of St. John’s.

The project has been divided into several phases that will each include some form of engagement to ensure that there are opportunities to provide input into all facets of the project from initial vision to final recommendations.


The initial consultation and feedback period has ended and we have compiled what we heard into a set of draft recommendations for transit service in St. John's. These will be available for viewing on January 21! The next round of consultation will ask for your thoughts on these recommendations which you can provide in-person at one of the upcoming January public consultation dates or online in the "Survey" tab beginning on January 24.

A preliminary ‘What we Heard’ document on the first phase of public engagement and public engagement sessions will be scheduled for this spring.

    Thinking about Metrobus and Go Bus, what is most important for you as the City completes this review?
