You may notice some changes soon if you take the bus.

The RMWB is changing six routes – 8, 10, 11, 15, 17, and 92 – which they note will better serve the community.

People who live and work at the Willow Square Continuing Care Centre will also have a more direct route to and from the building.

The municipality is also adding a new route for Stone Creek, route 42, which will include paths travelled by two previous buses.

These changes will come into effect on August 27, 2021.

More information can be found on the RMWB’s website.

However, there are some changes to routes that previously stopped in front of Composite and Holy Trinity.
