New Service in Barrhaven

New service in Barrhaven
New Route 179 will provide peak-period service for the new office and retail locations at CitiGate, west of Strandherd. Current Route 170 will be extended to serve the CitiGate development and to better serve residential areas along Maravista and Kennevale between Cedarview and Strandherd. Trips to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency location on Fallowfield Road will be provided by new Route 179 instead of Route 170.
