Halifax Transit route 9 'Barrington'
|Types of Buses Used
|New Flyer D40LF
Halifax Transit route 9 'Barrington' provided service from the south end of Halifax (Point Pleasant Park parking lot) to the west end (Mumford Terminal) via the north end (Duffus Street) by way of Barrington Street, Lady Hammond Road and Connaught Avenue.
The route 9 was one of the oldest routes in the transit system, and still followed much of the same routing as it first did in 1928 between Point Pleasant Park and downtown. The leg between Barrington Street (downtown) and Duffus Street remained unchanged since 1963, and the route was extended to Mumford Terminal in 1981.
In 2017, the route 9 was discontinued, and partially replaced by a new route 29. Although a new route 9 was created at the time, it does not service the same areas. The moves were made in part to the Halifax Transit Moving Forward Together Plan.
