Fall 2015 Service Enhancements [UPDATED 7/19]

Proposed changes for FALL 2015 are summarized below. These changes represent Phase 1 of the Ten Year (2015-2024) Local Transit Strategy. Phase 1, to be rolled out over three periods (September 2015, March 2016 & September 2016) is comprised of actions designed to address current system deficiencies by applying the limited additional vehicles and operators where we will get the best return on investment.

System deficiencies were identified by analyzing various data samples like schedule deviation and passenger loadings (among many other data sets). A sample of that data can be seen in the tables on the following pages. Additionally, input from Operations and the passengers was equally important and valuable.

No Changes Recommended for 33 SANATORIUM

After reviewing the current route configuration of 33 SANATORIUM, staff are recommending that no changes be made to the route on Redfern Avenue.

The review came as a result of a petition to City Council where residents on the north side of Redfern Avenue and west side of Chedmac requested that the HSR change the routing of 33 SANATORIUM. The 37 signatories requested a routing change to eliminate all westbound bus traffic on Redfern Avenue.

Route 33 SANATORIUM was most recently modified in January 2014 which resulted in all buses operating in both directions. Previously some bus trips traveled to and from downtown via Refern and Chedmac, while other trips would travel via Sanatorium and Chedmac. The route changes created a streamlined and consistent routing for the bus in both directions.

Below is some information taken from the report, which will be presented to the Public Works Committee on Thursday, May 21st.
