Route 2 has been around in one form or another since 1973...is there simply no one riding it?  Seems strange to have no service at all on Stirling Ave.

Are these changes coming in the Spring with the final Cambridge route changes?

Routes 1, 3, 8, 12, 16, 201, 205 will cover the 2 when it disappears. As for the Cambridge expansion, it’ll start in September.

who ever told you that info i will be talking to GRT mangers on Monday to see if your right 73 is busy at peak hour 

lets see what my contacts say on Monday

also Remmber the 2 interlines with the 23

It's in the council papers for Feb. 7. 

Route 23 and route 28 can interline as well at Stanley Park. Route 2's ridership never recovered from the pandemic, it's literally empty buses serving an area that doesn't need service.

So technically council did approve these changes. The committee has the power to approve/not approve, council just gives the seal. So the 2/73 are gone. Nothing can change that.

So...was there actually no one using the Northlake service?  Are they all rich big houses with cars that don't need transit?

Any chance of something else filling the gap?

According to the report that went to council, the 73 was averaging 8.5 customers per hour or 57 per day.

The business of regional council is largely conducted through committees like planning and works. The council meeting just has a routine vote to accept the outcome of all the committee meetings since the last council meeting, as it's the exact same people around the horseshoe (the entirety of regional council sits on the planning and works committee).

Sometimes there will be public uproar between the committee meeting and the council meeting, and councillors will change their mind. But unless that happens (which is extremely rare) it's approved.
