Wow I have not posted on this site in ages...
Transit is rearranging the routes at the Bridge Terminal, thankfully.
One of the motivators I would imagine is the rumour that the route 61 will start being served by artics ('bendy' buses if you will...) this spring, so now both 61s (to Halifax and Forest Hills) will need to stop at bays long enough for artics.
Still not sure why they insist on having the 52 Bayers Lake stop right in the middle of all the routes heading to downtown Halifax...
Just one comment on the new terminal, going back to something mentioned on the previous page about the horrible crosswalk placements. That upper level pedestrian 'bridge' is supposed to be the
way to get from the terminal platform to either Nantucket Ave or Thistle St heading in the direction of Victoria Rd. Yep it's a neat idea, and yep it looks nice. But nobody uses it. Pedestrians use the path of least resistance, so if you're going to leave the terminal and walk up either Nantucket or Thistle towards Victoria, you're going to just walk to the end of the platform and head towards the street, dodging buses as you go. Waste of money.
The only way I can see them stopping people from jaywalking across Nantucket to get to the McDonald's is either move the upper crosswalk as suggested earlier (and put in a proper crossing across the terminal driveway, because again nobody's going to use the upper level) or install a concrete barrier with fence up the middle of the road like they did at the Mumford Terminal.
