Yeah, the construction detours really killed the 200s schedule. It's always been faster to take the 7C from downtown than the 200, but it's gotten much worse.

Route 6 has always been a bit of a secret.  It's not excessively out of the way, and it runs on much faster roads, and makes fewer stops due to fewer passengers.  If you're going between downtown and Conestoga mall, it's actually a very sane choice!  If it's bad weather, it's almost certainly going to be more reliable than the 7.

Yes, although ironically, a friend of mine says he doesn't like the 6 because it's like a milk run.
