2014 Transit Service Enhancements Approved – Starts September 2014

After the last presentation to GIC left the councillors requesting cuts to the 2014 Transit Service Enhancement Plan, Don Hull made a brief presentation to GIC on Thursday morning with a slightly scaled back plan. The plan will see service enhancements to three routes, two east-west mountain routes (43 STONE CHURCH and 44 RYMAL) as well as one north-south route (20 A-LINE EXPRESS).

Today’s proposal was unanimously passed by the GIC.

The report comes at the request of council last June following the approval of the Rapid Ready report on June 26th, 2013. This report was the first of two coming, with the next report due out in the summer with a ten-year local transit service level strategy, including specific route recommendations and a financial strategy, with reference to the role played by rapid transit, and with a goal of reaching 80-100 rides per capita by 2025.

The Hamilton Street Railway has issued the Spring 2014 edition of their quarterly Bus News (their website has yet to be updated). Several routes have minor modifications while one route (35 COLLEGE) has reverted to previous routing.

Below are the changes that will take effect Sunday March 23rd, 2014.

Revised 43 STONE CHURCH Detour at Valley Park Effective March 5th

detour_small

Route 43 STONE CHURCH will be on detour as the bridge over Felker’s Creek on Marston Street in Heritage Green will be closed to all traffic for approximately two months. Effective with the start of service on Wednesday, March 5, 2014, the detour for route 43 as a result of the emergency Marston Street bridge closure will be revised. This revision should allow Operators to maintain the scheduled times better and eliminate missed connections in Heritage Green.

Buses will be detouring via Mud Street in both directions as shown on the map. All bus stops on Marston Street and Gordon Drummond will be temporarily out of service. Valley Park Loop will be serviced by route 43 STONE CHURCH buses in both directions (to Lime Ridge Mall and to Saltfleet School). Route 43 will not service Isaac Brock in the westbound (to Lime Ridge Mall) direction due to the bridge closure.

2014 Transit Service Enhancement Proposal

Don Hull and the public works team will present their proposed 2014 Transit Service Enhancements to the General Issues Committee on February 13th. The proposal recommends service enhancements to two east-west mountain bus routes as well as increasing the area of service on the HSR’s north-south express route, route 20 A-LINE EXPRESS.

The report comes at the request of council last June following the approval of the Rapid Ready report on June 26th, 2013.
