Walking, biking and rolling to Pulse

The Pulse Route connects to many of the city's trails and bikeways. The Rotary Greenway Trail link takes you all the way south to Bethune Street. From there it's just a few blocks to join the fun. The Trans Canada Trail brings you into town at the corner of Bethune and Brock, just to the west of the Pulse Route. If you are east of the river, the London Street bridge, Hunter Street bridge and pedestrian bridge just north of Little Lake will quickly get you to the Pulse Route.

Taking transit to Pulse

The downtown Peterborough Transit Bus Terminal is located on Simcoe Street a half block west of the Pulse Route. Check map and schedule details, here.

There are also public lots on Brock Street and Hunter Street.
