35 COLLEGE Buses Using Chesley and Chester Again

Effective at 5pm today the 35 COLLEGE route has been rerouted to once again service Chesley Street and Chester Avenue.

During the summer the route had been put on detour as both Chesley and Chester were undergoing reconstruction. Later in the summer it was announced that the detour would be made permanent. The routing change was approved and became permanent as of December 29, 2013.

Today it was quietly announced that the routing would revert to use these streets once more. 35 COLLEGE has used these streets since at least 1989 when the route did not travel further south than Stone Church Road. The route had its recovery point at Chesley and Stone Church.

Winter 2013 Service Changes

The Hamilton Street Railway has updated their website with the winter 2013 timetables. Several routes have minor modifications while others such as 5 DELAWARE have received a major realignment, with all branches of the service now sharing one uniform routing.

Below are the changes that will take effect Sunday December 29th, 2013.

35 COLLEGE Detoured at Chester and Chesley – PERMANENT CHANGE

detour_small

Effective Monday, July 8, 2013 from the beginning of service until approximately (revised November 8, 2013) weather permitting, Chester Avenue and Chesley Street will be under construction and will be closed.

Therefore, Route 35 COLLEGE buses to and from downtown via Upper James only will be on detour during this time.

However, HSR will be remaining on detour until after construction has been completed. City Council approved a rerouting for route 35 COLLEGE that will result in the detour routing that is now operating becoming permanent as of December 29, 2013.

There have been a number of requests throughout the years to get buses off of the residential streets in the Chester/Chesley neighborhood. As well, route 35 has been experiencing schedule adherence problems due to the increased ridership and increased traffic in the area. By remaining on West 5th in both directions, this will allow a slight improvement in this regard.

Customers in the survey will have the option of walking out to West 5th to get route 35 COLLEGE or walk out to Stone Church to get route 43 STONE CHURCH. Either of these walks is within the current 400 metre minimum standard that the HSR tries to maintain when designing routing networks.
