There & Back Again: A Routing Guide for GRT Operators

This section of the Unifor Local 4304 website is provided as a tool for Grand River Transit Operators, especially new operators, to learn and navigate the GRT system.  As the information provided in this section of the website is publicly available, logging into the website is not required to access it.

Directions and Maps are available for each GRT route (except busPLUS routes, which are operated by a private contractor).  In addition, platform layouts to indicate where buses park/board passengers for all major transfer points in the GRT system are provided.  All files are available in PDF format for easy downloading and viewing consistency.  We endeavour to update the routing information for each sign-up, so please ensure you check and download the correct routing information you need if we are approaching a new sign-up period.

Disclaimer: While we will make every reasonable effort to provide information that is of equal or greater value than management provides, we cannot be held responsible for loss or damages related to the information provided here if it turns out to be inaccurate.  Operators should also be aware that ONLY the regular routing and directions for each route are given and it is their responsibility to acquaint themselves with all the current detours which may affect the routes they are driving on any given day.  In addition, it is highly recommended that operators acquaint themselves with the routes they are driving BEFORE their shift begins; distracted driving of any kind cannot be condoned and the use of any electronic devices to view this information while driving is not only against GRT policy but is illegal.

TWO-WAY RADIO HELPER
Preamble
Using clear, concise and professional communication on the two-way radio limits misunderstanding and reduces unnecessary radio chatter. In addition, in stressful or emergency situations it is vitally important to clearly communicate important information correctly the first time. Correctly using the ICAO Phonetic Alphabet as well as radio 10-Codes while communicating over the two-way reduces misunderstanding, repeating information and improves response times by emergency services when needed. It is to your benefit to use the two-way radio professionally.

Some examples of when it's a good idea to use the Phonetic Alphabet when communicating on the two-way radio:

- Giving a Group Rotation during your work sign-up (ie. Group 326A would be pronounced as "Three-Two-Six-Alfa")
- Asking for a bus with a specific Route Branch Letter (ie. Route 7E would be pronounced as "Seven-Echo")
- Giving Licence Plate information to the Police or a Supervisor (ie. License Plate Number 'AMJT 501' would be pronounced as "Alfa-Mike-Juliett-Tango-Five-Zero-One")
