The City of North Bay will be introducing a new, efficient and convenient public transit booking and tracking system beginning Jan. 24, 2021 with the launch of dynamic dispatching.
Transit will be operating a hybrid dynamic dispatch and fixed route system throughout most of the City on evenings Monday through Friday between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m., Saturday between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. and Sundays between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Using the mobile app, or telephone for riders without access to a smartphone, passengers can select a pickup and drop-off location and confirm their ride. Once a ride is booked, dynamic dispatching technology matches multiple passengers headed in the same direction into one bus and directs passengers to a convenient bus stop location. The myRide NBT app, which is now available for download at the Apple or Google Play store is a trip planning app that can be used all day. This app will provide time of arrival information and allow for real-time bus tracking.
During the Dynamic Dispatch hours:
Blue: Dynamic Dispatch Zone
Green: Fixed Route Zone (Serviced by routes 8A and 8B)
