Special Canada Day service and free fare in the Comox Valley
Comox Valley – On Sunday, July 1, the Comox Valley Regional District and BC transit are pleased to offer free fare on all routes, and special Canada Day service on select routes, making it easier for everyone to get around, avoid traffic and enjoy the parade and all other festivities.
Special Canada Day service will include 15-minute service on route 1 Fitzgerald, and one-hour service on routes 2 Cumberland, 6 Uplands and 8 Willemar.
Routes 12 North Valley Connector and 34 C2C Express, which do not normally operate on Sundays, will also offer special service on this day: Route 12 North Valley Connector will run one trip in the morning and one in the afternoon, and route 34 C2C Express will offer service twice every hour (leaving from Comox Centre and finishing at the bottom of the hill, where Ryan Road meets the Old Island Highway).
Since the bridge will be closed for the parade, all affected routes will be modified for the day.
Regular fares, schedules and routes will return on Monday, July 2.
