Yesterday’s brush with Hurricane Bill, in HRM, had little impact on Halifax Metro Transit bus and ferry trips.
Only two bus routes were affected:
- Route 9 (Barrington) discontinued service to Point Pleasant Park around noon.
- Due to rocks and water being washed up onto Shore Rd, in Eastern Passage, Route 60 (Eastern Passage) avoided portions of Shore Rd.
Fortunately the large waves hitting some portions on Nova Scotia’s coastline were much smaller in Halifax Harbour. Even during the peak of the the winds on Sunday afternoon, the Halifax-Dartmouth ferry continued running.
Thumbs up to Metro Transit for keeping this vital service running!
