Mobile Crews : This is a service that has been utilized on weekdays in the spring and fall at the Trent-Severn Waterway since 1997. In a mobile crew, lock staff travel and conduct lockages at multiple lock stations in a series. Mobile crews will travel with groups of boats within a “grouping”. This has been referred to as “flying crews” or “roaming crews”.
Groupings: This term describes the number of lock and bridge stations that a mobile crew are operating. The largest grouping operated by a single mobile crew will be 3 lock stations. This size grouping has been implemented at the Trent-Severn Waterway since 1997.
Phone Number Service: Each lock and bridge station that is operated with a mobile crew will have informational signage on the lock station including contact information for the responsible mobile crew. The lock staff will provide estimated lockage times for that boater.
