Halifax Transit has launched two new Urban Express Routes, improved existing bus routes, and expanded its Woodside ferry service to give commuters in Dartmouth more options when travelling to downtown Halifax.

Here are all of the changes that commuters in Dartmouth can enjoy:

New Urban Express Routes

Two new limited-stop Urban Express Routes will transport passengers in and around the Forest Hills Parkway and Mount Edward Road (Route 78) to the Woodside Ferry Terminal.  Additionally, residents in Cole Harbour will see the existing Route 165 Woodside MetroLink replaced with the new and improved service on the Route 79 Cole Harbour Express.
