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!
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.
