Summer 2013 Detour

On June 3rd, 2013, The City of Hamilton closed the Queen Street Hill/Beckett Drive for repairs. This caused an immediate detour of 34 buses to head up/down the West 5th Hill. Throughout the first week of the detour, extra buses had to be dispatched due to the fact that many buses would show up downtown between 30 and 45 minutes down.
