KS – December 15, 2016


Week in Review


OC Transpo Updates

Changes to routes effective Dec. 25
Route 61 becomes new Connexion Route 269

Route 62 becomes new Connexion Route 267

Route 66 becomes new Connexion Route 256
Connexion Routes continue serving the same local stops. All morning trips serve Bayshore Station for better connections to Carling Campus on Moodie. Afternoon trips no longer stop at Westboro, Dominion, Lincoln Fields or Pinecrest stations (connect at Bayshore Station).

I am happy to announce that the 4:10pm Route 66 bus arriving at Mackenzie King Bridge currently operating with a 40-foot bus will be assigned an articulated (60ft) bus in the new year as long as ridership levels remain high enough to warrant the need for this size of bus.


New fares starting New Year’s Day
Express premiums fares are eliminated. If you usually buy an Express pass, you will only need to buy a Regular pass for January..

The above are the highlights for Kanata South, full details can be found on my website www.councillorallangubley.ca

2017 Project

As a 2017 project I am pleased to invite you to join me in documenting the people, places and activities that make Kanata South a great place to live, work and play.

Please send me your ideas of who you think should be highlighted in our book and why.  If you want to put more than one person forward – please do so as we all know that a community has many people that make it special.

Details regarding this project can be found on my website under the Community tab.
