Just a reminder of bus service changes in our area starting September 1.
Service through the Orchard Park neighbourhood will be removed, leaving a small section of the area more than 400m to transit stop.
Route 9 changes will serve the intersection of Wonderland and Fanshawe Park Roads and provide two-way service along Limberlost.
Route 9 will no longer be interlined with Route 6 in the evenings and will operate to downtown during all time periods.
Route 31 will be modified to operate along Aldersbrook Road to the Hyde Park Power Centre. The route will now operate as a stand-alone route, no longer interlined with Route 19 and 32

The LTC Report regarding proposed changes to service has now been posted at http://www.londontransit.ca/staff-report-2-re-2019-service-plan-conventional-transit/
Here is an extract from the LTC report regarding proposed changes for Routes 9 and 31. The report presents two routing alternatives through the Whitehills neighbourhood.
Regarding service for Orchard Park, the report states, “With the goal of simplifying the system a main objective of the 2019 service plan it was determined that maintaining the current routing [for route 31] through the neighborhood until 6 pm was not a viable option as it would continue to add confusion to the route.”
