Summation of adjustments during Plaza Blvd. construction (August 29th through to mid-October):
Codiac Transpo will be diverting buses to the newly constructed bus layby on the south side of Plaza Blvd. while construction of the new north side bus layby takes place. We apologies for the inconvenience this will cause to our customers as re-routing of all buses connecting at the Plaza transfer point will be necessary. Please review the following adjustments carefully. These detours and adjustments will be in effect for at least 6 to 8 weeks commencing August 29th through to mid-October. Thank you for your patience during this construction period.
50 Red Line
The red line will leave CF Champlain and take its normal route to the off ramp to Trinity. Instead of turning left on Mapleton it will continue straight along Trinity, turn left on Mountain, left on Plaza to the new south side bus layby. Leaving the Plaza transfer point this bus will continue to the Carson on ramp at which time it will travel directly to CF Champlain. Due to the pacing of the above route the 50 Red Line will not have time to travel into U de M. All passengers going to the university will be required, during the construction period, to transfer to the 61 Elmwood A bus at CF Champlain. (Route Map)
