Person boarding Route 7 bus in downtown Kitchener during heavy snowfall
Sample blue severe weather stop noticeDuring heavy snowfall or freezing rain conditions, GRT may declare a transit severe weather event. When a severe weather event is declared, a number of bus routes will go on detour and stops will be closed.

The aim is to minimize service interruptions by routing buses around problem areas where vehicles can get stuck in snow or icy conditions.

Transit severe weather events will be posted at grt.ca/alerts and the @alertsGRT Twitter.

Stops that are closed during a severe weather event have a special blue sign below the stop marker.

The map below shows street sections that are impacted during severe weather and closed stops. To see alternate stop locations, click on the closed stop icon. For a list of closed stops by route, scroll past the map.
