Instead of turning into McMaster Medical Centre, westbound buses would turn right onto Main Street heading passed Emerson Street. Buses would continue onto Osler Drive heading into Dundas and then turn left into University Plaza. Returning eastbound buses would turn right onto Osler Driver, continue eastbound on Main Street West, turn left onto University Avenue (McMaster Campus) and resume previous routing through campus.
