OC Transpo Morning Route Improvements Coming for Half Moon Bay

OCTranspo_red_smallCity Councillor Jan Harder and OC Transpo have announced improvements for Half Moon Bay residents for the morning commute.

Starting with the fall schedule change in September, all Route 177 buses from Half Moon Bay running Northbound will become a Route 95 at Barrhaven Centre. This means that riders who currently need to transfer to a 95 to get downtown will be able to stay on the same bus.

The fall schedule is currently being developed by OC Transpo and will reflect these changes.

While the afternoon rush will still require riders to transfer from a 95 to a 177, the HMBCA will continue to lobby for improved service for that period as well.
