The #16 bus to return to part of Main Street

According to information the OECA has received from Councillor Chernushenko’s office, OCTranspo plans to reinstate the #16 bus on part of Main Street sometime this spring. Plans are to have the #16 from downtown come up Lees Avenue as it does now, and turn left onto Main Street and continue south on Main Street as far as Hazel Street, where it will make a left turn into the parking lot of Saint Paul University, and terminate its run at the university. Plans are to eliminate the existing route west on Hawthorne Avenue, up Elgin Street and around the police station.

For instance, the transportation master plan continues to have the four lane $200+M Alta Vista Transportation Corridor (AVTC) included, even though traffic volumes do not justify it and it makes even less sense as the city proceeds with the $2.1B light rail project.
