Project Updates

Phase II Public Engagement – November 2018 

We Want To Hear From You! 
The South Nanaimo Local Area Transit Plan is currently being developed and we’d like to hear from you on how to improve existing transit services and identify future service needs. The study area encompasses South Nanaimo, which includes Routes 5 Fairview, 6 Harewood, 7 Cinnabar/Cedar, 30 NRGH, 40 VIU Express and the addition of two new routes 8 Cedar and 78 Cassidy.  
Input received during Phase One of Public Engagement in February has helped to inform and develop several options for the LATP, which will outline improvements for existing transit service and infrastructure over the next seven years. Phase Two is an opportunity for you to review and comment on those options.
