Route Details

This route serves Montreal Street between Downtown Kingston and Highway 401, making 9 stops within this corridor. It also serves Queen's University along the same routing as routes 601/602. Buses are signed as 801 going southbound, and as 802 going northbound.

This route currently runs on a 15-minute frequency during peak periods, and 30-minute frequency at all other times.

History

Routes 801 and 802 were introduced to better serve the Montreal Street corridor and the Rideau Heights community, as per the Kingston Transit 2017-2021 service plan. Upon introduction, this route replaced all service to the Montreal Street Park and Ride (local buses now loop within Rideau Heights) and also resulted in a restructuring of service around the Rideau Heights community.

Routes 801 and 802 are planned to be extended west to St. Lawrence College in the near future.

Vehicles

Routes 801 and 802 primarily use New Flyer XD40 and Nova LFS buses painted in the Kingston Express scheme. Rush hour crews may use any 40ft bus in Kingston Transit's fleet.
