detour_small

Due to the West End Decoration at Woodland Cemetery, the access gate at Woodland Cemetery (west end of Spring Garden Road) will be closed from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM. HSR will not be able to service the Woodland Cemetery during these times.

This ceremony will not affect Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.

On the outbound trip at the corner of Botanical Drive and Spring Gardens Road, the 9 ROCK GARDENS bus will turn left (east) on Spring Garden Road rather than turning right to go to Woodland Cemetery. The regular routing to Holy Sepulchre Cemetery can then be resumed on Spring Garden, east of Botanical.

Operations will monitor and implement the regular routing as soon as the ceremony is concluded and the gate reopens.
