Due to roadworks in Market Street starting from 10 May 2021 and proceeding for at least the next 22 weeks, no buses will be able to enter the street from York Street. Please see how the affected routes will change during this period so that you can plan your trips ahead of time.
Travelling towards the CBD from the Garden Route Mall, the bus will travel around the CBD in the opposite direction to its normal route. This means that from Courtenay Street, the route will turn left into Cradock Street and to the Hub where Route 53 will temporarily use stop 563F CRADOCK opposite the Hub, and Route 53B will use stop 563E CRADOCK.
Departing from the CBD, both routes will continue traveling down Cradock Street, turn right into Market Street, right into York Street, around the circle and along Courtenay Street heading in the Rosemoor direction and back to the Garden Route Mall.
Route 56R will deviate from its normal route when travelling towards the CBD along Caledon Street. Instead of turning into York Street and then into Market Street, the bus will proceed down Courtenay Street and turn right into Cradock Street towards the Hub. The normal route back to Denneoord will be followed.
Travelling down York Street from Pacaltsdorp, only the afternoon route will be rerouted to turn into Hibernia Street instead of Market Street.
Since most bus routes travel along or cross Market Street on their way to or from the Transport Hub, passengers are advised to make provision for possible delays on all routes. Please prepare to catch an earlier bus to ensure that you still arrive at work or school in time.
