New MetroX Route to Halifax airport now available
June 5, 2012 by Stephen
As of May 31, commuters have been able to enjoy permanent and direct bus services to Halifax International Airport, courtesy of MetroX Express, the city of Halifax’s public transit system. The route provides an important connection between downtown Halifax, the bridge terminal Fall River Park & Ride, Aerotech Park, and the airport. Consequentially, it will improve transit for tourists and support the existing employees at the airport.
The newly expanded service also fulfills a key regional plan on the part of the province to provide highly requested services to some high traffic areas of the city of Halifax.
Print companies in the Halifax area may also be asked to help promote the new service in print by way of billboard or flyer printing at bus terminals and stations. The MetroX service will also mean that more poster printing will be up and around the city promoting the new route. The new route 320 will provide service every 30 minutes during peak weekday hours and 60 minute services during weekends. Newer vehicles are being released to operate the route in the Park & Ride Route, which will feature bike racks and newly-designed accessible parking spaces.
The new service will take approximately 40 minutes and will allow printers plenty of advertising opportunities during the busy ride. Billboard and banner printing are already very common advertising services on buses and in bus shelters. Parking at the Fall River Park & Ride will be free, so the Transit Commission may seek the future assistance of print advertisers to help offset parking costs.
