Halifax Transit route 68 'Cherry Brook'
The route was part of the high frequency Portland Corridor along with the routes 59 and 61, providing a combined 10 minute (or better) service between the Portland Hills Terminal and Bridge Terminal (20 minutes on weekends)
The route was originally numbered 62 and serviced the Crichton Park and Grahams Grove communities in Dartmouth, but this route was split in two in 2003, with the Cherry Brook and Forest Hills section renumbered 68. The current route 62 Wildwood continues to service Crichton Park and Grahams Grove.
From 1994 - 2000, the route 68 was known as the now defunct 68 Ross Road, servicing Ross Road near Cherry Brook. Prior to that, the route was known as the 68 Auburn, which serviced Auburn Drive until the route 61 Auburn was created to replace it.
During rush hour, the route is extended into downtown Halifax via Barrington Street and Spring Garden Road, servicing the Scotia Square terminal and terminating on Summer Street outside the Halifax Infirmary.
