BC Transit Wants to Hear from the Cowichan Valley

BC Transit and the Cowichan Valley Regional District welcomes public feedback with an online survey and at five transit open houses in the Cowichan Valley on Thursday, October 26, Friday, October 27, and Saturday, October 28.

Through these sessions, BC Transit wishes to discuss and seek input on proposed changes and service improvements to the Cowichan Valley Regional Transit System, including routing, scheduling and frequency on routes 3 Quamichan, 4 Maple Bay, 5 Eagle Heights, 6 Crofton-Chemainus and 7 Cowichan Lake via Gibbins Road. The engagement will also discuss potential placement of new bus stops in high density areas.

The proposed changes build on the vision of the Cowichan Valley Transit Future Plan to develop a more effective and efficient service, and the changes are expected to be implemented in July 2018.

Feedback gathered through the online survey and these public consultations will help our planning and scheduling teams to create final routing and schedules, and provide an opportunity for the public to discuss the role of transit in the region.
