Getting Around

​CK offers transportation services including bus, taxi, and Uride, and has ideal driving conditions with minimal traffic. Locals enjoy an average 15 minute commute by car from home to work, and bike paths are becoming more connected throughout the community.

Driving

In Chatham-Kent commutes are short, traffic is calm, and parking is easy to find. It is a great community for drivers. If you're going to drive in Chatham-Kent, you'll need an Ontario's Driver's License. Find Service Ontario locations locally to get started. If you have an International Driver's License, you have up to 60 days to get your license. You can also apply for an International Driver's Permit, which is only valid for a year.

If you are interested in buying or leasing a vehicle, you can use the business directory to look for local retailers or find used vehicles on Autotrader.ca.


Bus Services

CKTransit is Chatham-Kent's bus system and offers pickup every 30 minutes. Urban transit is available throughout the city of Chatham, and inter-urban transit links our many communities together, providing service throughout the municipality.

The Inter-Urban Transit Service is happy to accommodate those who currently use the accessible transit bus service. We recommend you call 24-48 hours in advance to book a seat on the Inter-Urban Service.
