Service changes in the Victoria Regional Transit System will take effect as of June 28.

BC Transit said service reductions this summer will permit increased service later on in the year to meet the higher fall and winter demand. This includes reducing trips geared toward middle and secondary schools and service level adjustments for routes 7 UVic/Downtown and 21 Interurban/Downtown.
