Halifax Transit route 62 'Wildwood'
|Length (one-way)||15 km|
|Types of Buses Used||New Flyer D40LF|
|Peak periods||30 min.|
Halifax Transit route 62 'Wildwood' provides service from Cole Harbour via Mount Edward Road (and Wildwood Blvd, where the route gets its name) to the Bridge Terminal. The route also provides service to Manor Park and the Crichton Park area via Prince Albert Road, instead of taking Portland Street all the way to downtown Dartmouth as most Cole Harbour routes do.
The route, originally called the 62 Cherry Brook, once went beyond its current terminus of the Cole Harbour Place sports facility and serviced the community of Cherry Brook in Westphal. The route, which at that time was considered very long and circuitous, was split apart in 2003, with the Mount Edward/Manor Park/Crichton Park section renamed 62 Wildwood, while a new route, the 68 Cherrybrook was created to service the Cherry Brook leg of the route. The route 68 travels the entire length of Portland Street to reach downtown Dartmouth.
