Bus service from Collingwood to Blue Mountains is getting an extension.

On Monday night, council voted unanimously in favour of a committee recommendation to extend the Collingwood Blue Mountains Link for the rest of this year.

The reason for extending it just one year at this point is that Grey County is exploring several transit options that are likely to start in 2020 that may affect the Link. 

Also, in 2020 the town of Collingwood will be undergoing a comprehensive transit study which will look at efficiencies, routing, and expansion.

In 2019, annual ridership of the bus from Collingwood to Blue Mountains was 51,995.

That's compared to ridership of 24,683 in its first full year of operation in 2014.
