Vote to Name North Grenville’s New Transit System

NORTH GRENVILLE, ON – North Grenville will be launching a municipal-wide, on-demand, public transit system for residents of all ages and abilities in early 2024. The Municipality undertook extensive research and consultation with transit experts to determine an appropriate and affordable approach to best meet North Grenville’s needs.

In the lead up to the launch of this new municipal-wide, on-demand transit system, the Municipality is asking residents, businesses, and stakeholders to assist with choosing a name for this new transportation initiative. 

“We are thrilled to involve our community in the naming process for our new on-demand transit system and help shape its identity. We encourage everyone to vote on one of the proposed names,” highlighted Mayor Nancy Peckford.

Proposed names include: VoyageNG, RideNG, oN the Go and Kemptville and Rural Transit (KART)

Residents can cast their vote online at:

Hard copies of the survey are available at:

North Grenville Municipal Centre (285 CR 44, Kemptville)
North Grenville Public Library (1 Water St., Kemptville)
Kemptville Youth Centre (5 Oxford Street)
Seniors’ Community Services (251 Sanders St., Suite 101)
Community Living North Grenville (2830 CR43, Kemptville)

Residents have until December 1, 2023 to cast their vote on the name of North Grenville’s new Transit System. Council will decide on the name based on public feedback, and it will be announced along with more details of the updated transit service in early December.

New Transit System Coming 2024

The new municipal-wide on-demand transit system is scheduled to launch in January 2024. This will be a significant expansion from the current accessible transit system and will provide residents with an affordable public transit option in North Grenville.

“Having public transit is crucial and will allow so many more residents the opportunity to move around the community and get where they need to go,” emphasized Mayor Nancy Peckford.

The new transit system will be the first form of public transit in the Municipality and will include:

  • Service seven (7) days a week
  • On-demand booking and the ability to schedule trips in advance
  • A variety of ways to book a ride (phone, app, online)
  • One-way fares and thirty (30) day passes
  • Specialized service for riders with accessibility needs and users of our current accessible system - including door-to-door service and the ability to book rides within a shorter time-frame

More details will be provided in the coming weeks at


The Municipality has been operating an accessible transit service since 2019. In 2023, the transit service was expanded to seniors.

In 2022, the Municipality completed a Transit Study which suggested a variety of options to expand transit service. Council directed staff to launch a municipal-wide, on-demand transit service in 2024.

Significant funding to support the municipal transit system operating costs comes from the provincial Gas Tax.
