Halifax Transit Service Changes
Starting May 23, 2022
As our city changes, so do our public Transit needs. On May 23, 2022, Halifax Transit will introduce minor routing adjustments as part of the Moving Forward Together Plan (MFTP).
Three routes will be adjusted to travel on the Bayers Road Transit Priority Corridor which features new bus lanes to improve transit reliability and overall travel time. This project is a key component of Halifax Transit’s Moving Forward Together Plan and the Integrated Mobility Plan.

What is the Moving Forward Together Plan?
In 2016, Halifax Regional Council approved The Moving Forward Together Plan (MFTP) – Halifax Transit’s strategic route network redesign. Service changes based on the MFTP will improve our transit system to better meet the needs of residents of the Halifax region, now and in the future. These service changes are outlined in Halifax Transit's 2022/2023 Annual Service Plan, which was approved by Regional Council in April, 2022.
