Halifax Transit buses are now more accessible and user-friendly thanks to some recent technology upgrades. We’re rolling out stop-by-stop voice announcements and digital signage on select routes starting in mid-December, with more routes being added in the new year. Now you’ll always know where you are, and where the next stop is. These upgrades are part of a series of upgrades all aimed at helping to make transit better for everyone.

We’ve all been there—your arms are full, you’re distracted and you get off the bus only to realize as it pulls away that you left your umbrella on board, just as it starts to pour. But what happens to the things that get left behind on the bus? What about when somebody loses something like a wallet or a cell phone?

We asked Earl Romkey, Supervisor, Bus Operations and Crystal Rudolf, Bus Operator everything you ever wanted to know about Halifax Transit’s lost & found.

Halifax Transit has more than 600 operators driving hundreds of buses on dozens of routes every day. But have you ever been curious about what’s the hardest part about driving a bus? Or how about what the best part of driving a bus is? 

We know you’ve got questions, and luckily we’ve got answers thanks to Halifax Transit operator Crystal Rudolf.

If you follow Halifolks on Facebook, you may recognize Minh Tan. This speedy runner has a favourite workout—racing the Number 1 bus from Scotia Square to the Mumford Terminal. Halifolks first caught up with Minh in January, and recently they hopped aboard one of our buses to catch him in action.

A huge thanks to our very own operator, Brad Verge, who was a very worthy opponent. 

And the winner? You’ll have to watch to find out!

Halifax Transit has more than 600 operators driving hundreds of buses on dozens of routes every day. But have you ever been curious about what happens if a bus makes a wrong turn? What about how many buses are on the roads at any given time? Or whether operators drive the same bus every day?
