Canada Day transit detours announced for Cobourg Transit

By Cecilia Nasmith

The Town of Cobourg has notified Cobourg Transit users of some detours and route adjustments that will be caused by the Waterfront Festival June 29 through July 1, as well as the Canada Day parade July 1 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

During the Waterfront Festival, terminal stops for Routes 1 and 3 change to Third Street by the Third Street parking lot. All other stops remain unchanged, but delays should be expected.

A Canada Day detour will take place on both routes due to the big parade.

Route 1 will be missing downtown stops from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.. Route 1 will still be visiting the east end from University Avenue East and D'Arcy Street, but King Street will be closed to traffic between William and Church streets.

Route 2 will be missing stops south of University Ave. W. during the same time period, at which time King Street is closed to traffic between William and Church streets.

Bus times will vary during the parade period. Users are encouraged to check the Where's My Bus? web-mapping app that provides updates on the geographic location of the transit buses, featuring updates every 12 seconds in real time.
