Wednesday, July 15, 2015 (Halifax, NS) - Halifax Transit is advising passengers that the Woodside Ferry will continue operating on 30-minute service until further notice due to an ongoing mechanical assessment of one of its vessels, the Christopher Stannix.
Halifax Transit staff conducted an initial assessment of the issue earlier this week, and have determined that the vessel must be brought out of the water to conduct a complete evaluation. It’s anticipated that the vessel will be out of service for several weeks to accommodate this work.
In the interim, trips from the Woodside Ferry Terminal will depart on the :07 and :37, and trips from the Halifax Ferry Terminal will depart on the :22 and :52.
Another public service announcement will be issued when the vessel is back in service, and updates will also be provided as available via @hfxtransit on Twitter.
Halifax Transit regrets any inconvenience that may be caused by this service disruption.
