Bruce Power's summer bus tour program continues to grow in popularity. 

More than 6,200 people took advantage of the company's tourism initiative over the last three months, visiting the Bruce Power Visitors' Centre followed by a bus tour of the site.

Bruce Power says in 2018, the total number of visitors was 5,100.

Chris Mercanti, Manager of Community and Indigenous Relations for Bruce Power says, "this year, we extended the bus tour program by starting it in June, and that certainly contributed to the program experience its largest number of visitors yet.

"I'd like to thank everyone involved in making the program happen, and a special thanks to our summer students at the Visitors' Centre for the enthusiasm they show on the tours as ambassadors for Bruce Power."

The Summer Bus Tour Program has continued to increase in popularity year-over-year since it began in 2014. 

The Bruce Power Visitors' Centre has resumed its regular hours of Monday to Friday, 9-4 p.m.
