A change will be coming for transit users making their way on routes along Industrial Road, according to a City of Whitehorse release last week.

In an effort to improve traffic visibility, the City of Whitehorse will move the stop that was near the corner of Industrial Road and Jasper Road about 80 metres closer to Quartz Road.

While the city had stated in an announcement Jan. 22 that the bus stop would be moved Jan. 25, it later put out a statement noting the move had been postponed. No date was noted on when the change will happen.

The new bus stop will be near the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council office, across from Better Bodies.

It will impact the Copper Ridge-Granger, RR-McIntyre-Hillcrest, and Takhini-Yukon College routes.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope this new location will better accommodate all modes of transportation,” the city said in the original Jan. 22 statement announcing the change.
