BC Transit rolls out more service hours

B.C. Transit is adding two more buses and 5,000 more service hours to its operations in the Capital Region this fall.

HandyDART users will also see an annual increase of 2,250 service hours and an extra vehicle to better meet peak demand.The extra transit buses will be assigned to the busiest routes as needed, a policy that has already shown signs of success in alleviating wait times, said Susan Brice, Victoria Regional Transit Commission chair.

Bus service will also improve to Dockyard in Vic West, Shoal Centre and Royal Roads University.McKenzie-bound buses leaving the University of Victoria will also be rerouted directly to the Finnerty exchange instead of around Ring Road, delivering an extra 69 trips per week to UVic without adding buses or increasing the budget.For current schedules, visit bctransit.com/regions/vic.
