DRT detours buses in Pickering, starting today



The Region of Durham is closing

  • the intersection of Valley Farm Road North and Finch Avenue

to repair utilities from today, Saturday, March 14 until Sunday, March 22.

The Region’s road watch website also advises that it is closing

  • Altona Road between Sheppard Avenue and Rougemount Drive

to connect utilities today and tomorrow, Sunday, March 15.

Durham Region Transit is detouring buses from their regular routes during these projects.


The detours affect these DRT routes: 102 Liverpool, 102 Liverpool high school special; 107B Rosebank; 112 Brock high school special, 121 Liverpool / Finch / Hwy 2; 181 Liverpool / Finch / Hwy 2 / Maple Ridge / Glendale; 182 Bay Ridges / West Shore / Rosebank / Finch / Hwy 2.


182 Bay Ridges / West Shore / Rosebank / Finch / Hwy 2

(DRT has not confirmed this detour, although Durham Region has announced that it is closing part of Altona Road this weekend.)

On Saturday, March 14 and Sunday, March 15, buses likely operate along their regular route to Altona Road and Littleford Street, then detour:

westward along Littleford; and then
northward along Hoover Drive to Twyn Rivers Drive,
resuming their regular route westward along Twyn Rivers.

112 Brock high school special

Students attending Durham District School Board and Durham District Catholic School Board schools are enjoying March break, so DRT is probably not operating its special high school trips this week. Nevertheless, DRT’s website advises passengers that it is detouring this special high school route while the Region closes the intersection. If the buses are operating, from Monday, March 16 until Friday, March 20, the morning bus to Dunbarton High School, Pine Ridge Seconday School and St. Mary’s Catholic Secondary School proceeds along its regular route to Brock Road North and Finch Avenue, then detours:

southward along Brock;
westward along Kingston Road;
north- and westward along Glenanna Road; and then
northward along Liverpool Road North to Finch,
resuming their regular route northward along Liverpool North.
