Over the past few weeks, I have heard discussions on the bus about these upcoming changes. Some of the things I hear sounded stupid but look to be true. Now that I have seen the changes as a whole it makes a lot more sense.
Basically, the routes I use are only changing by about 5-10 minutes and better evening runs. I really would not call this a major change, with the exception of the East-West and University, runs and addition of a few routes. But the numbers are. They are now grouping lines by the area where the old system had numbers all over the place.
These changes are taking effect on August 9th, 2009. Please leave comments below on what you think of the changes. saintjohn.ca/transit-schedules has more information.
