44 RYMAL extended north to Walmart in September

Beginning Fall 2019, route 44 RYMAL will be extended to service Walmart on Centennial Parkway just south of the QEW. Customers along the corridor between Eastgate Square and Walmart will benefit from 30 minute frequencies in non-peak mid-day service periods, 20 minute frequencies in am and pm peak service periods, and 1 hour frequencies in the night-time service period.

Customers along the corridor will also benefit from expanded hours to match the current route 44 RYMAL span of approximately 5:30 am to 12:30 am Monday through Saturday and 6 am to 12 midnight on Sundays.

The extension greatly exceeds the current service span and frequency of 56 CENTENNIAL.

With this extension, 56 CENTENNIAL will operate on weekends only every 45 minutes between Eastgate Transit Terminal and Lakeland Loop (via Walmart). The route will operate between 8:00am and 8:00pm. Next summer will see 56 CENTENNIAL return to seasonal weekday service to service Confederation Park once the park opens.
