Notice regarding Richmond and Wellington LTC routes to Western’s campus

Western’s campus community is advised that due to weight restrictions on Western’s University Drive bridge, Richmond and Wellington London Transit Commission (LTC) bus routes will not be coming onto campus beginning on Monday, March 7 for the foreseeable future.

Following a recent engineering inspection of the University Drive bridge, it was recommended that larger-scale, articulated buses not run over the bridge in its current state until further assessment can be completed.

The 6 Richmond, 6A Richmond and 13 Wellington routes that currently run over the bridge, will now stop at the University’s Richmond Gates.

Western recognizes that a significant portion of our community regularly commutes to campus via public transit and is working with the LTC to address this situation and serve riders.

Updates with respect to detour routing will be posted on the LTC website and Western’s website on an ongoing basis. This issue does not effect any other buses from routes that come onto campus or normal vehicular traffic.

Members of the Western community who have disabilities will be accommodated. Students should be contacting Students with Disabilities at 519-661-2147. Faculty and staff who require assistance should contact Western Equity and Human Rights office by calling 519-661-3883 or emailing accessibility@uwo.ca
