Some people call it short-term pain for long-term gain, when something like reconstruction of Algonquin Blvd. disrupts bus routes, for example.
During reconstruction, buses will be rerouted both ways on Mountjoy… to Vimy and Thériault.
Timmins Transit operations manager Marcel Coté outlines the affected stops, starting with westbound.
“So those would be the bowling alley stop, the beer store and Vianet,” he says, “and then the Shoppers Drug Mart and Pop Shoes eastbound.”
Coté has one request for the bus riding public this construction season.
“Be patient. Our buses may run a little late, but we’ll do what we can to keep people on schedule.”
