On Remembrance Day, military members past and present ride for free

Nov 9, 2017
Transit System: Victoria

Victoria – To commemorate Remembrance Day, the Victoria Regional Transit Commission and BC Transit are pleased to offer free service on Saturday, November 11, to military personnel in uniform—including cadets—and to all riders with Army, Navy or Air Force Association cards.

The free service applies to all routes within the Victoria Regional Transit System, and is a small gesture to honour the men and women who serve or have served in the Canadian Armed Forces.

If it is possible and safe to do so, BC Transit encourages bus drivers to stop their bus at 11:00 a.m. to observe the traditional minute of silence in memory of everyone who has given their life and service in times of war.

Buses will run on a regular Saturday schedule. Saturday-level service will also apply on Monday, November 13.
