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!

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!

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.

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 27 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 27 has been split into to two radiales, so now there are two different Linéas 27, one going from El Centro north and the other goes from El Centro south.

I will soon list these as “Linéa 27 Radial Norte” or “Linéa 27 Radial Sur” on the left menu.
