Currently Route 19 and 39 provide a similar level of service as they operate directly on arterial roads, serve a rapidly developing area, and have similar ridership and service hours. Combining these routes provides a better service match than the existing 19/31/32 interline. It also provides one bus connection to travel between Masonville Place and Hyde Park and Oxford.
The Route 19 as of September 1, 2019 will extend service during all time periods. Route 19 will operate between 6:30am and 11:00pm on weekdays, between 8:30am and 10:45pm on Saturdays, and between 9:00am and 8:00pm on Sundays. This means extended one hour later on weekdays, five hours later on Saturday, and two hours later on Sundays for the former Route 38/39.
Route 19 will see improve reliability and increase frequency during weekday peak periods.
Route 19 will not serve the Masonville Mall terminal and will instead stop at Fanshawe and Richmond within approximately 150 metres of the main Masonville Mall Terminal.
