Bus Route Adjustments Ward 9

As discussed at the Finance and Economic Development Committee meeting of September 10, staff committed to reviewing bus route changes that had been implemented in anticipation of a fall launch of the Confederation Line. Staff undertook this review to identify any adjustments that could be implemented rapidly to improve connectivity and reduce walking distances for customers. The goal of the review was to identify bus route adjustments that provide maximum benefit to customers and could be implemented immediately.

 

Bus route adjustments for Ward 9 are as follows:

 

  • Route 80

–        A new southbound trip will be added from Tunney’s Pasture Station to Antares at approximately 6:51 p.m. This will extend 15-minute service until after 7:00 p.m., ensuring that there is frequent service for customers connecting from downtown at the end of the afternoon peak period.

  • Route 89

–        An early morning trip on Route 105 has already been extended to start at Tunney’s Pasture, coordinated with the arrival of an early trip on Route 89.

–        Two new southbound trips will be added from Tunney’s Pasture Station at approximately 6:00 and 6:30 p.m. This will extend 15-minute service until approximately 6:45 p.m., ensuring that there is frequent service for customers connecting from downtown at the end of the afternoon peak period.

 

These changes will be implemented on Monday, October 15th.
