Metro Transit operations during upcoming snow storm


Friday, Feb. 8, 2013 (Halifax, NS) – Metro Transit passengers are advised to be aware of possible service level changes on buses and ferries this weekend due to the impending storm overnight tonight and tomorrow. With forecasts calling for 25-35 cm of snow with wind gusts of up to 90 km/hr it’s possible that Metro Transit may need to implement Snow Plan detours on some of its routes to ensure the safety of its passengers and operators. Although unlikely, it is also possible that service suspensions or cancellations may be required in the event of severe winter weather conditions.

The Snow Plan is designed to maintain service levels while minimizing disruptions by rerouting buses in areas consistently known to be troublesome during severe winter weather conditions. View the Snow Plan online at for a complete list of route detours.

Please note, while the Snow Plan is in effect, accessible ramps on Accessible Low Floor (ALF) buses will not be deployed at standard ALF bus stops or non-standard ALF bus stops until bus stops have been properly cleared due to safety concerns.

Metro Transit will be tweeting real time service changes during the storm @hfxtransit; if you do not follow Metro Transit on Twitter, view the live feed at Alternatively passengers may contact 311 during the hours of 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
