Metro Transit proposes significant upgrades for Burnside service
The Greater Burnside Business Association (GBBA) has spoken out about the need for improved transit services within and to the Park for many years and appears Metro transit is now listening.
In its recently released five-year strategic plan, the transit service makes frequent reference to Burnside as an area it considers a priority for improvement. The plan calls Burnside and surrounding Dartmouth communities “the second largest destination” it serves next to downtown Halifax. As such, the plan calls for restructuring of several routes (including Routes 16, 52, 56, 64, 66, 72 and 85); creation of new routes to link Burnside with such areas as Sherwood Park; and the creation of a central terminal or transfer point in the Park.

A Member's Feedback
“As newcomers to the area, Dartmouth Crossing Ltd. welcomed the opportunity to meet with and inform the Greater Burnside Business Association of its development plans as they evolved over the past few years. Now that Dartmouth Crossing is a reality and we are part of the community we have appreciated the interest and enthusiasm and have certainly benefited from the support of the Association in addressing issues of common concern such as the extension of Wright Avenue. DCL is now a member of the Association, mainly because it is an effective voice in the community and at city hall.”
