North Pier 8 The downtown terminus was relocated to Pier 8 at the Hamilton Waterfront. Northbound buses, upon reaching John and King would continue northbound on John Street where previously buses would have turned. Buses would then turn left on Barton Street, right on James Street, right again on Guise Street and then left onto Discovery Drive at Pier 8. Returning southbound buses would exit Pier 8 on Discovery Drive, turn right on Guise, left on James, right onto King Street and then left into MacNab Transit Terminal. Buses would then continue their previous routing south to Hamilton International Airport.

North MacNab Transit Terminal The downtown terminus was relocated to the MacNab Transit Terminal. Routing would not change for the most part. When the bus would reach the stop King at Hughson the bus would continue west on King, south on MacNab to platform 6. Leaving the bus would travel south on MacNab, east on Main, south on James and continue the previous routing. The other significant change to occur was that the route would now serve all local stops between downtown and Mohawk College.
