The NAIT LRT station is set to open on August 31 after being closed for four months since April 28.
Jason Roth, NAITSA Advocacy Director, has been assured by ETS about the reopening of the station.
“I believe that we have impressed upon them the necessity of having the station open on time,” said Roth.
From August 26 to 30 ETS will run shuttle trains between Kingsway station to NAIT station from 6:13 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every 12 minutes, Monday through Friday.
Bus routes 8 and 9 are recommended for this route outside the shuttle hours.
The NAIT station is closed to accommodate a less frequent schedule due to construction on the 66 street train tunnel between Coliseum and Belvedere station. The NAIT train station is a three-car station and ETS is running five-car trains system-wide to allow more riders during the upgrade work construction.
