Grand River Transit's new fall schedule makes some big changes to bus routes in Kitchener and Waterloo. 

The new schedule includes a new iXpress route that runs along Highland Road. Several previous lines have been combined to create new routes. 

The biggest changes include:
  • The new Route 1 Queen-River, which combines what were previously known as Routes 1, 17 and 25,
  • The new Route 2 Forest Heights, which combines what were Routes 2 and 24
  • The new Route 20 Victoria-Frederick, which combines what were Routes 15, 19 and 20.
