Halifax Transit resumes full service tomorrow, free bus and ferry through Sunday, Mar. 22

Thursday, Mar. 19, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – Halifax Transit is advising residents that all conventional bus and Access-A-Bus services will resume regular operation tomorrow, Friday, Mar. 20. 

Harbour ferries operating on both the Alderney and Woodside routes already resumed regular service for residents today. 

To assist residents that need to get around the city over the next few days and to thank passengers for their patience during the recent service disruption, Halifax Transit is offering free bus and ferry services beginning today through the end of the service day Sunday, Mar. 22. Passengers with a monthly transit pass for March will have their pass extended for use by an additional three days, up to and including Apr. 3. 

Bus service has been suspended since Wednesday morning as a result of a significant snow storm in our region, which resulted in road conditions that prohibited Halifax Transit from safely operating bus service for passengers and employees. Additionally a heavy snow load on the roof of the Burnside Transit Centre caused the municipality to close the building yesterday as a precautionary measure until the building was deemed safe for Halifax Transit employees. Employees were approved for access to the building this afternoon following a structural assessment. 

The Burnside Transit Centre is the location of approximately 60 per cent of Halifax Transit’s fleet of buses, with 60-70 of those vehicles stored inside the building, as well as Access-A-Bus dispatch and scheduling office. As a result, Halifax Transit was unable to deliver a scheduled, fixed route bus service or Access-A-Bus service until access to the Burnside dispatch centre and buses was re-established.

Halifax Transit thanks residents for your ongoing patience and cooperation as the municipality works to clean up after this week’s storm. For bus and ferry schedule information visit www.halifax.ca/transit/schedules/index.php.
