Municipal Offices & Rec Facilities Closed for the Rest of the Day

Thursday, March 19, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – Due to the ongoing storm cleanup and continued suspension of Halifax Transit bus service, all municipal offices, recreation facilities and customer service centres in the Halifax region will remain closed today, March 19.

Safety is the municipality’s top priority. Keeping the offices closed will facilitate ongoing clearing efforts by crews and ensure a safer commute tomorrow for our employees and residents.

Halifax Transit staff decided last evening to continue the suspension of bus and Access-A-Bus service this morning to allow the municipality to address an issue with one of two Halifax Transit bus garages, and continue with ongoing snow clearing of major arterials throughout the region.

Work is continuing to remove snow from the roof of the depot and the objective is to ramp up limited bus service on routes along major corridors in the city from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. today. A further update on transit service is expected around noon.

All municipal recreation facilities, including rinks and pools, will remain closed today and afternoon and evening programs are cancelled. For more information on municipal recreation, please visit www.halifax.ca/rec.

For regular storm updates and information on snow clearing and impacts to municipal services, please visit www.halifax.ca/snow.
