The City of Whitehorse is piloting a dedicated bus lane in Riverdale, which is aimed at reducing traffic congestion and transit delays.
The pilot project, which ran northbound along Lewes Boulevard from Sept. 3 to Oct. 10, will now run until Remembrance Day.
City staff are extending the project to gather information on performance of the transit lane during winter conditions.
So far, the lane has proven to save valuable route time and has resulted in the reduction of missed passenger transfers at the Steele Street hub.
Transit delays are typically longer during the winter, and staff are interested in learning to what extent these delays can be decreased with a dedicated transit lane.
Everyone is reminded not to park or stop along any part of Lewes Boulevard during this pilot project.
