Minor Detour of the 7, 10, & 26 because of Av. España and New Routes of Buses Leaving Terminal Terestre

As the title says, this is a post with two different subjects smashed into one. The detour effecting the bus lines 7, 10, and 26 is minor and not quite meriting its own post. So, to fill it out, I’ve added the maps showing the routes the inter-provincial buses will be taking in and out-of-town from the south and the west.

So first of all, TranVia construction has closed the connecting part of Av. España and pushed the buses back over to Huayna Capac.

 

More interestingly, but less having to do with local buses, check out the new routes for buses leaving and arriving Cuenca.

Instead of coming all the way to Las Americas, buses coming from Guayaquil will now cut through neighborhoods west of Feria Libre all the way up to the newly paved parts of Tejar; cut around to Las Americas via Las Pencas, and then join the old route across on Av. Heroes de Verdeloma.

That’s a lot of traffic for those people living along Las Pencas!

Cmi-LnhW8AAunaa.jpg large Meanwhile, in a move that probably should have taken place a year ago, they’ve finally re-route bus traffic going south to places like Loja and Yunguilla Valley are now cutting over the Autopista on the south side of town to quickly get over to Control Sur area that is just south of all the construction.

 

Here is your bus to SuperMaxi Las Americas: Changes to the 3 and the 8

The Bad News: The 8 has been changed YET AGAIN in just a few weeks.
The Good News: The 8 is going past Supermaxi Las Americas the closest.

There was no word of this yesterday, but this morning, we got this update for the 3 and the 8 lines near Supermaxi.

As you can see above, the 8 has now shifted northward, instead of turning off with every other bus in El Centro going south, the 8 now continues across on Vega Muñoz and cuts over to Las Americas the way the 16, 28, and 100 used to but no longer does.

There is a stop just before it turns right off of Las Americas called simply “Supermaxi” where you can now get off within a couple of blocks of the store rather than more than a half-dozen. After that, the 8 goes up De Las Pencas to catch up with its original route out Tejar.

Returning from west, the 8 now continues up Tejar to the street just above Supermaxi where it joins back up with Las Americas to go the same the 16, 28, and 100 used to, which I mentioned before.

Meanwhile, the 3 is now cutting across the Las Americas and Ordóñez Lasso construction zones by way of 3 de Noviembre westbound and 12 de Abril eastbound on the south side of Rio Tomebamba. Cm1vNvAW8AA5jxp.jpg large

 

So throw out the last maps in the other post for the 8 and add these!

MAJOR CHANGES as Las Americas in Front of Supermaxi is Closed

The latest change to hit and it is a DOOZY!

13558672_1332994856729170_2973782897035985573_o

Let’s start with the detours for the 16, the 28, and the 100s…. they NO LONGER go anywhere close to SuperMaxi Las Americas.

This is a very inconvenient change for a lot of people who go to Supermaxi Las Americas because there is no good way to get there anymore without having to walk several blocks.

13576660_1333159896712666_2310197943350818339_o

The northbound 16 now goes up Edwin Sacoto to 12 de Abril where it crosses over to the Otorongo bridge to join the rest of the buses using Miguel Velez, the only street on the west side of El Centro not closed yet. After rejoining Gaspar Sangurima, it returns to its newly changed route turning left on Toral, right on Pio Bravo, and rejoining Tarqui on its way north to San Pedro.

13575739_1333159900045999_850460193034415551_o

Meanwhile, the southbound joins all the other buses cutting through El Centro on Miguel Heredia and going around the Redondel Otorongo.

13584641_1333159833379339_8721946275589156618_o

Look familiar? The southbound 100 takes the same path as the 16 to get to Las Americas.

13575837_1333159840046005_844060204002671305_o

The northbound 100 is taking Remigio Crespo all the way over to Unidad Nacional before joining back up with the same route as the 16 all the way up to Gaspar Sangurima.

The 100 also has been changed on the others side of the airport were Av. España has been closed to traffic. Look for the details in another post.

13576864_1333159893379333_3346442363218412151_o The 28 used to take the same path as the 16 and the 100 around Las Americas where it would turn around and start its return trip.

Now, it still takes the same path as the 16 and the 100, but turning back on its return trip on Remigio Crespo.

 

Cold Weather Brings More Bus Route Changes

Not that the cold has made them close roads, but both seem to be happening without warning and for longer.

No sooner had I updated 20 different routes’ maps (yes, I’m still trying to finish all the uploads of the new PDFs), the city updates the schedule and closes new areas of the TranVia route and alters some of the same bus lines I just finished updating!

Hey, no hard feelings… ’tis the season. These latest major changes have been a headache for me, but there isn’t much more of it left to tear up!

This week, the last area to to be torn up, the area of Avenida España past the Redondel de Milchichig to Avenida de las Américas, has been completely closed off to traffic.

According to the new schedule, this work will conclude and the street will re-open March 11th, 2017.

As such, the bus lines that were still utilizing the bit of road are all detoured.

Here are images of the changes provided by the city.

Líneas 7 and 10 will both be taking the same route on their northbound trips.

Meanwhile, Línea 20 has been cut from its leg to Ciudad Kennedy and parada Hormiazuay.

Turning around at the Redondel de Milchichig, the 20 now loses seven stops on the east end of its normal route. That leaves only the 28 serving the Ciudad Kennedy area.ClKna9zWEAE3Rvx

Be sure to plan your travels through this area accordingly!

Like I said, although this means more work and more time before I can have the website updated and even longer before I’ll have new print copies with the changes available. Bear with me folks! I’m doing my best!

Las Líneas 3 y 8 So se Modifican

I just heard back about the 3 and the 8 over on Av. Ordóñez Lasso…. there will be NO MODIFICATION of those routes.
 
The 13 and 50 have been routed around the construction on Las Americas, not necessarily around Av. Ordóñez Lasso, therefore the 3 and 8 will NOT be effected by the TranVia construction on Las Americas.

Upcoming Change to the 50 west of Las Americas

Just like the 13, the 50 will also be detoured around the construction on Ordóñez Lasso and Camino Del Tejar starting on June 14th.

I didn’t get a ‘return route’ map for the 13, but it may also be detoured onto the same roads coming back.

Upcoming Change to the 13 WESTBOUND to TEJAR

Even though Ordóñez Lasso is currently under construction, crews have started paving Camino Del Tejar, one block away!

CkodkujXAAA44fG

Heads up! Starting next Tuesday, June 14th, the 13 to Tejar (NOT the one that goes to Mall Del Rio) will be detoured around on the south side of Rio Tomebamba all the way out to De Los Cerezos, where it will then cross over the construction zone and rejoin its regular route.

No word yet about the 8 and the 3 and whether or not they will be detoured as well. I’ll let you know as soon as I find out!

New PDFs uploaded

I’m in the last phase of rendering and uploading the new maps for the routes changed by the construction in El Centro. 

Extra time was needed to update the base maps as well as the route trail, but you will notice that I didn’t update the stop names. The new maps show the detoured routes, but I left the numbered locations of the original stops in place for now. EMOV personnel have been installing new parada signs along Velez and Heredia, the streets on the west side of El Centro that are the new detour routes.

I’ve gotten three of the twelve routes published as PDF and uploaded to the side tabs for members, so far. I’m still working at finishing the rest and uploading them today.

Things have been pretty quiet on the site while I’ve been working on these maps, but I’ve been putting all the daily news stuff into my new podcasts.

New Route 24 Images: North and South Radiales

Note to members: I’m making these updates available to you first, but the PDFs will be updated in a few days. When I’ve updated the PDFs, then I’ll make this visible to the public.

The 24 has been split into to two radiales, so now there are two different Linéas 24, one going from El Centro north and the other goes from El Centro south.

I will soon list these as “Linéa 24 Radial Norte” or “Linéa 24 Radial Sur” on the left menu.
