5/7 to 5/11 - Route 9 - Due to road construction, Route 9 will not serve the YMCA. Passengers wishing to reach the center should use either the Rose Hill Drive @ Rugby Ave bus stops (#19906 or #13853) or the Grove Rd @ Concord Dr bus stop (#19526).
5/12 to 5/13 - Routes 4, 6, and 9 - Due to a road closure, Routes 4, 6, and 9 will not serve Lane Road from service startup on Saturday until 1:00 PM on Sunday (Route 9).
