PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — Northern Health has announced that the Northern Health Connections bus will not be running over the Christmas and New Years holidays.

The program provides transportation for clients travelling to non-emergent health services outside their home communities. A variety of routes connect communities across northern B.C., along with service to Vancouver. Northern Health says that demand for the service typically drops over the holiday season, as fewer people book healthcare appointments.

Starting December 19th, the Northern Health Connections program will run on a modified schedule, leading up to a holiday season break. Regular service will resume the week of January 2nd.
