5, N6 to stay on detoured route until December 2010

5, N6 to stay on detoured route until December 2010

Downtown Vancouver transit riders: the #5 and N6 will now be staying on their current reroutes until December 2010.

The 5 and N6 have been detoured since the Paralympics, owing to a construction project at Robson Square. It was originally expected to be completed by September 2010, but the contractor responsible for this project has informed us that the Robson Street closure will have to be extended until November/December 2010 for them to safely finish this project.

Ergo: the 5 and N6 will remain on their current reroutes until December 2010!

Here’s a map of the reroutes again, in case you need a refresher.
