Service Adjustments

Service Reductions starting February 27, 2023

Beginning Monday, February 27 Halifax Transit will be temporarily suspending service on three bus routes, making schedule adjustments to three routes, and removing trips from 30 routes.

These service reductions are new and replace all but six of the trips impacted by the service reductions introduced in November 2022.
