Poor road conditions are forcing Halifax Transit to hault service as a nor’easter is bringing up to 25 centimetres of snow.

The city announced it would pull buses off the roads shortly after 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

It comes after a number of buses were stuck on slippery roads in Halifax and Dartmouth.

“Please avoid unnecessary travel due to poor driving conditions and to allow crews to continue snow clearing operations safely.” – HRM

The city states bus operations will resume when it is safe to do so.
