How can I travel in Peterborough if I don’t have a car?Peterborough Transit provides public bus service within the City. Please refer to Peterborough Transit’s fare schedule for pricing.
The buses follow 12 regular routes, each passing through the terminal at 190 Simcoe St. every 40 minutes. There are bus stops along each route where you may wait for a bus.
If you are not planning on buying a car, you should choose housing close to the downtown or one of the regular bus routes.
You may also use one of the private taxi companies in Peterborough. Taxis are also called “cabs”. Settlement.Org provides more information on travelling by taxi.
Bicycles, scooters and electric bikes are very popular in Peterborough especially in the summer. The City has special “bicycle only” lanes on certain streets. The Peterborough Moves website has information on cycling routes and walking trails in the City.
Bicycles must follow all the traffic laws that a car does. Safe cycling courses are sometimes offered in the summer through the City of Peterborough. You can check their online registration site to find out more.
If you live and work in the downtown area of Peterborough then you may choose to simply walk to get around.
