Snowed streets likely to slow buses: Transit

Transit riders can expect delays at many bus stops across the city as drivers have to contend with poor, snow-covered roads, warned Edmonton Transit yesterday.

Transit riders can expect delays at many bus stops across the city as drivers have to contend with poor, snow-covered roads, warned Edmonton Transit yesterday.

Patricia Dixon, a spokeswoman with Edmonton Transit, says bus divers are dealing with longer than usual traffic jams along many major routes.

“Sometimes buses are up to 15 minutes late, sometimes they’re not late at all, it just depends on what time of the day a rider catches the bus and what’s been happening in the afternoon on the roads,” said Dixon.

Bob Dunford, director of roadway maintenance for the city’s transportation, said crews were out all night and are expected to continue this morning to clear snow along some of the city’s busiest roads and bus routes.

Crews also plan to be out each night plowing the roads until Friday, Dunford said.

Tow trucks have also been placed at many of the city’s bridges to keep traffic going during rush hour because of the snow, said the city.
