Halifax Transit Service Changes
Starting November 22, 2021
As our city changes, so do our public Transit needs. On November 22, 2021, Halifax Transit will introduce large-scale service changes primarily affecting Dartmouth communities (Districts 2, 3, 4, 6) but that also reach to Halifax, Spryfield, Cole Harbour, and communities between Dartmouth and Porters Lake/Seaforth as part of the Moving Forward Together Plan (MFTP).
A new West Bedford Park & Ride will also open, which will require minor route modifications to four routes to service the Park & Ride.
Combined, this is the largest number of MFTP route changes being implemented to date.

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 2021/2022 Annual Service Plan, which was approved by Regional Council in May, 2021.
