Thetis Lake bus service to be added

B.C. Transit shakes up bus service in light of summer season

B.C. Transit is exercising the concept of give and take for its summer bus schedule.

As of Monday (June 23), routes that service the University of Victoria, Camosun College and Royal Roads University will see slightly reduced  schedules.

The seasonal adjustment is made to conserve transit hours during the less popular summer months to be able to maximize service hours during peak ridership when post-secondary schools are in session.

On the other hand, a new service to Thetis Lake is being introduced as part of the No. 53 Atkins Road bus route. The side trip, a suggestion from transit riders who responded to a public consultation last fall, will run until Sept. 1.

For the summer season, service is also being increased on Routes 75 and 81 to accommodate extra passengers heading to Sidney,  Brentwood Bay and Swartz Bay.

Also affecting the West Shore is a discontinuation of the No. 49 Langford Exchange bus due to low ridership. Service on that run has been picked up on other routes.

For more details on these and other service adjustments, pick up a Rider’s Guide on board any bus, visit bctransit.com/regions/vic or call the BusLine at 250-382-6161.
