East Main & James With the reconstruction of MacNab Terminal the routing of this route was modified slightly. The bus would turn right onto Hunter as per usual, however instead of then turning right onto MacNab the bus would remain on Hunter and turn right one block later onto Bay St S. The bus would continue on Bay past King St W and return to previous routing.
