Campbell River Transit System Expansion and Restructure
On August 28th, 2017 transit service in Campbell River is being expanded and restructured to better serve the City; changes include:
- Transit route improvements that reduce route duplication and improve route-directness
- Improved schedules and service frequency at peak commute times
- New transit loops and better connections to Willow Point and Campbellton
- Additional bus stops and new bus stop signage
This service change is a key part of the Campbell River Transit Future Plan and Master Transportation Plan. The goal of improvements to frequency and directness is to make transit easier to use and a more attractive choice to area residents who currently choose to drive while still serving existing transit customers.
