Effective Wednesday, April 19, transit riders will see service changes to the Lobird Estates – Copper Ridge Express portion of Route 5.
With the current closure of Robert Service Way due to the April 8 escarpment slide, temporary changes are required to maintain the schedule.
Until further notice, there will be no Route 5 service:
- Along Robert Service Way;
- In Copper Ridge; or
- Along Second Avenue, south of Main Street.
Copper Ridge riders who use Route 5 will need to use Route 2, or Route 6 with transfers. Downtown riders who use the stops along Second Avenue, south of Main Street, will need to use the City Hall stop.
Service to Lobird will leave City Hall at the regular scheduled time at :40 after the hour and additionally at :10 after the hour during Monday to Friday peak times.
The Takhini – Yukon University portion of Route 5 will remain unchanged.
Without these changes, Route 5 runs approximately 90 minutes late, and impacts other routes as well.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause riders and thank everyone for their patience during this time.
