DRT diverts Oshawa bus services



Durham Region Transit’s website today lists three detours of bus routes in Oshawa, although it does not explain why the detours are necessary. (Although we can figure out the reason for one of them!)


The detours affect these routes: 6 Dean; 8 Stevenson; and 11 Grandview.
