Cornwall Transit is enhancing some of its routes to service the new SmartCentres retail development.
Located at the corner of Ninth and Cumberland Streets, the SmartCentres development is slated to open to the public on Thursday, January 29th.
As of Monday, January 26th, the Cumberland (#2) and Brookdale (#3) bus routes as well as the Community Service route #61 will begin stopping at the SmartCentres development. For passenger convenience, a new bus shelter has been erected and placed near the southwest corner of the property.
Changes will include:
- The Cumberland route (#2) will offer service directly from Pitt and Second Streets. It will enter from Seventh Street, continuing through the SmartCentres and east on Ninth Street before proceeding north on Cumberland Street.
- The Brookdale route (#3) will enter SmartCentres from Ninth Street before continuing on to the main bus terminal at Pitt and Second Streets.
- Community Service route #61will provide front-door service within the SmartCentres development
The other Cornwall Transit routes will remain the same and Transit buses will continue to serve the Brookdale Centre.
“These enhancements will ensure that Cornwall Transit passengers have full access to the SmartCentres development,” said Len Tapp, Transit Manager. “We expect this to be a popular stop for both regular passengers and new users of our service.”
