Prom night in Cobourg means transit adjustments

By Cecilia Nasmith

Prom night at Cobourg high schools is a night of magic that is kicked off by a tradition around grand arrivals that adds to the experience for young participants – and to the transportation headaches of anyone who has to travel in that vicinity at the same time.

That time and place would be Friday, May 24, when arrivals at the Cobourg Collegiate Institute (335 King St. E.) are expected to take place between 5 and 7 p.m.

As a result, the Town of Cobourg is adjusting Route 1 of its transit system during that two-hour period.

Three stops will be eliminated during that time – D'Arcy Street at King Street East (south side), D'Arcy Street at King Street East (north side) and King Street East at Abbott Boulevard.

There will also be a detour from the regular route – the bus will leave the terminal and head east on King Street East to Walton, Chapel and D'Arcy Streets, and then to Cottesmore Avenue before continuing on to King Street East.
