New bus route coming to Chilliwack this fall
CHILLIWACK – Starting September 5, it will be easier for transit users in Chilliwack to get around, thanks to an expansion to transit service in the community.
This expansion is possible due to the addition of 4,800 new service hours, funded by the Province of B.C. and the City of Chilliwack.
Service changes will include the introduction of a new route, 9 Industrial, and the addition of weekday service to route 5 Yarrow/Greendale.
Other improvements include service expansion during peak times on routes 1 Vedder and 3 Chilliwack, and extending route 8 Tyson to Lindys Drive.
To supplement all these changes, as of September 3, route 66 Fraser Valley Express (FVX) will start offering Sunday and holiday service, connecting the Chilliwack and Central Fraser Valley transit systems to Metro Vancouver.
A brand-new service that will connect the Chilliwack and Agassiz area with the District of Hope will also be introduced on September 5.
