Those living in Westerra will have a direct transit route starting February 1.
The city says the Dieppe-Route 1 schedule will be extended into the subdivision during peak hours which are 6-9 a.m and 3 to 6 p.m
There are currently three bus stops in Westerra and as population continues to grow, Transit will monitor ridership levels and increase service as needed. Based on 2019 Transit estimates, an additional 6,000 rides per year is anticipated.
This service change was approved by City Council in 2019 and was planned for implementation in 2020 but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
