OC Transpo route 96A will be changed slightly this fall to serve the new Tanger outlet mall just north of the Queensway. The mall opening is planned for October 17, and the route would change a few weeks before that.
We asked City Councillor Shad Qadri about what impact this change would have to Fairwinds residents. He told us:
- The route change was made at the request of the mall owner, who is paying the cost for the extension to provide this service.
- OC Transpo says this will add 2 minutes to the total trip.
- Councillor Qadri is in discussion with OC Transpo about ongoing changes and improvements for Stittsville residents.
