NEW PROJECT BRINGING MORE LONDONERS TO GRAND BEND 7/6/2018 8:42:37 AM
A special project taken on by a single Londoner will take 45 residents of the Forest City all the way to Grand Bend for a day at the beach
It's called Bend Bus London
Matthew Thomas moved to London 5 years ago and practically made the beach in Grand Bend his second home for his canoeing and kayaking hobbies, and felt that more people needed simpler access to Ontario's west coast
Thomas says that after years of tweeting about how a bus line to the coastal town needs to happen, he decided to take matters into this own hands. He decided to rent a school bus and deliver people himself.
The round trip route runs every other weekend starting this weekend on Saturday, July the 7th and only costs $20 for tickets.
Thomas adds that this will be his pilot year, and if it's a successful one, then there is no reason why Bend Bus London can't continue in the future.
tickets are available on eventbrite.ca or by searching Bend Bus London or Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
