Transit Cape Breton schedule and routing changes add hourly service to the Regional Hospital and later service to New Waterford

SYDNEY, NS – Beginning on Tuesday, October 12, Transit Cape Breton Route 13 will serve the hospital hourly on Monday to Friday between 8:00 am and 10:00 pm and on Saturday between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm. 

Along with the recent routing change to serve Open Hearth Park and Harbourside Commercial Park, Route 9 now features later service to New Waterford. This change is prompted by CBU students seeking to travel to New Waterford later in the evening. The last bus to arrive in New Waterford now will arrive at 10:00 pm instead of 7:00 pm. 

Route 11 changes include increased service to CBU at peak times,  including express to CBU via the Sydney Port Access Road. Route 11 Ashby  will no longer stop at the Mall, but instead go straight to CBU. The mall is served by Route 1 and 9 and Sydney-CBU Express buses.  

Route 12 changes include a half hour earlier service between Sydney and Sydney River for workers who work in the area aiming to arrive by 8:00 am.
