New city bus route will connect NW and SE


A new direct transit route has begun begun operating in Medicine Hat, providing riders an easy and affordable way to travel across the city.   Route 12 offers a direct connection between the northwest and southeast areas of Medicine Hat, including expanded service to Brier Park Industrial, Box Springs Business Park, Saamis Drive NW and the west end of Third Street North.  The initiation of the new route followed an operational review, which began in the Fall of 2014, and included fixed route transit services.  Route 12 will operate Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will intersect with many existing routes for on-route transfers.
