Provisions for effective continuity of transit service needs to be incorporated into the TTC planning process. Oftentimes, public transit buses cannot efficiently be detoured in the same manner as other vehicles (particularly for short-term maintenance projects). On transit routes, the TTC plan shall provide for features such as temporary bus stops, pullouts and waiting areas for transit patrons.
Transit operations are particularly affected by lane and road closures in the central business district (CBD). Additional work time restrictions may be included in the right-of-way use permit for work zones on the Tryon Street Transit Mall and in the vicinity of the Charlotte Transportation Center .
