Ride the LT
Ride the LT has two pickup points on Wednesday mornings, Carambeck Community Centre and Carleton Place Town Hall. If you can’t get to either of these locations, they will pick you up and drop you off at your home address, as long as it is within the town limits. The schedule is designed that shoppers can have one stop of 45 minutes at one location and then go to a second location for another 45 minutes or spend 90 minutes at one destination.
The cost is $2 for a return trip. Passengers do need to register with LTA the day before (Tuesday), particularly if they need to be picked up at home. This can be done by phoning 613-264-8256 or 1-877-445-5777.

Safe Cycling in Carleton Place
The Town of Carleton Place Recreation and Culture Department is pleased to present the “Safe Cycling Routes in Carleton Place" pamphlet which is now available in hard copy or online download.
The “Safe Cycling Routes in Carleton Place” Pamphlet outlines roadways in Carleton Place that are safer for cycling transportation due to wider street shoulders, lighter vehicle traffic, and bike rack access. The pamphlet also lists where public washrooms are located throughout the town, as well as information on how to rent a bicycle at the Information Centre. Hard Copies of the Pamphlet can be obtained at the Carleton Place Information Centre, Carambeck Community Centre, and Carleton Place Arena.
The Recreation and Culture Department was successful in securing grant funding through the Safe Cycling Education Fund to cover the expenses of the creation and printing of the “Safe Cycling Routes in Carleton Place” pamphlets. The next stages of this Safe Cycling initiative include; installation of Safe Cycling signage on the designated roadways, and installation of larger map signage throughout the Town of Carleton Place.
“When Carleton Place hosted the Eastern Ontario Active Transportation Summit in 2017, we were fortunate to have Justin Jones from ‘Share The Road’ cycle throughout Carleton Place and provide suggestions for improvements,” says Community Programmer Jessica Hansen. “His main suggestions included; having safe cycling routes throughout Carleton Place, as well as investing on cycle-friendly directional signage for tourists visiting Carleton Place on their bicycles. We are in the process of implementing all suggestions as funding allows, and we are eager to complete this project.”
The Recreation and Culture Department will be seeking additional grant funding through the Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling Program to assist in covering the expenses of the roadway and larger cycle signage throughout Carleton Place. The entire project is estimated to be completed by June, 2019.
