On Monday, more than 300 bus stops will get new names across the region, Grand River Transit says.

The change is to standardize the names throughout the transit system and for "wayfinding purposes," GRT said on its website.

In some cases, the stop names will be changed to landmarks. For example, the University/Seagram stop will change to University Ave./University of Waterloo. As well, Frederick/Irvin will change to Frederick/Region of Waterloo Headquarters.

In some cases, street names will be added; the stop at Waterloo Collegiate Institute will become Hazel/Waterloo Collegiate Institute.

GRT is also standardizing midblock stop names. For example, Frobisher/100s Block will change to 151 Frobisher Ave.

There are eight pages of changes listed on the GRT website.
