Mapleview Transit (MT) is a local public transit operator operating in the City of Mapleview in Gravenhurst Region in the Imaginary Lands of Nicholas. Its headquarters is located at 122 Lily Street North in Downtown Mapleview. Its motto is Mapleview. Connected.
Overview MT is established as a public transit system solely owned and operated by the municipal government of Mapleview. MT serves the City of Mapleview and nearby townships such as Nobleton, Lacroix, and Lansing. All bus routes only serve the city during daytime and early evenings. Unlike Gravenhurst Regional Transit (GRT), there are no night service programs.
At this time, MT operates about 20 bus routes and 1 rapid transit line within the city boundaries. The system connects to GO Transit services at South Town Terminal beginning May 2009. GRT also contracted Route 50 (Dever Local) to Mapleview Transit, allowing the transit to serve the township of Dever - Dovercourt as well.
Gravenhurst Regional Transit is currently discussing merging terms with Mapleview Transit. If at all possible, the merger could be performed in January 2011 (originally the expected merger date was December 2009).
