Changes to transit system coming this September

Authorities are hoping some changes to the local transit system can help turn the corner on low bus ridership.

BC Transit has decided Fort St. John’s bus system needed an upgrade, after noticing that the city was the only one in the province that was losing ridership.

In July, representatives from BC Transit presented the proposed changes to City Council, with an overall goal to double ridership by the year 2030.

BC Transit had to run the idea by School District 60 before anything could be finalized, because some students will be getting to school 10 minutes early.

Passengers will also see the transit exchange return to the North Peace Cultural Centre at the intersection of 100th St. and 100th Ave.

The changes can be found at these links:

You can also download the attached map. 

Changes to the bus routes begin on September 8th.
 

Meanwhile, City Councilors decided on Monday to have free transit rides for the week of September 8-12th.
