Parkbus gears up for another season

Guest Blogger:  Alex Berlyand from  Parkbus


Spring is finally here, and with it comes the 2014 Parkbus schedule for the upcoming season. The first Parkbus of the season leaves Toronto on Victoria Day long weekend (May 17-19), which is now almost a month away. It’s time to get that dusty backpack out of the garage, open up the maps and start planning!

Parkbus will continue to offer affordable, hassle-free service from both Toronto and Ottawa to a number of provincial and national parks in Ontario. Regular service will be offered to Algonquin, Killarney, Grundy Lake, French River Provincial Parks as well as Bruce Peninsula National Park and Tobermory. In addition to those, a new pilot service will be launched to Six Mile Lake Provincial Park and Honey Harbour, the access point to Georgian Bay Islands National Park – two great outdoor destinations that are only 2 hours away from Toronto!

 If you’ve never taken Parkbus or been camping before, Ontario Parks is offering the award winning Learn to Camp program at both Grundy Lake and Six Mile Lake provincial parks, which are both serviced by Parkbus – a great opportunity for families or anyone who is looking to spend a couple of nights in the outdoors this summer.

Parkbus is run in collaboration with Ontario Parks, Parks Canada, MEC and a number of other partners and stakeholders, however it relies on enthusiastic, outdoor oriented volunteers to join the team and become Parkbus Ambassadors.
