GRT detours in Hespeler continue indefinitely

Note: Since GO Transit expanded its service area to Waterloo Region yesterday, Saturday, October 31, we start reporting on Grand River Transit services today. GRT provides transit services to the Cities of Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo and the Township of Woolwich — all local municipalities within the Regional Municipality of Waterloo.

Grand River Transit is indefinitely continuing two long-term detours in Hespeler, which started more than a year ago on Monday, September 15, 2008.

Officially, GRT says it’s been detouring the buses operating along the 65 Fisher Mills and 71 Melran routes “due to safety concerns raised by our operators”.
