As of 13 April 2004, residents in the Cape
Lazo/Point Holmes area and the Huband
Road/Seal Bay area will have a Community Bus service.
The service will be available three times a day, Monday to
Friday, to each of the service areas shown on the map. The service
is available to all residents of the specified areas.
How it Works
The Community Bus trips provide door-to-door pick up and drop
off at residents' homes within the specified areas. In town,
passengers with disabilities can arrange for door-to-door drop
off and pick up at their destinations. Other passengers will
have an opportunity to travel to major exchange points where
they can then transfer to and from regular Comox Valley Transit
To use the service, call Comox Valley Transit at 339-5442.
The first time you call, you may be asked for your name, address,
and telephone number. People with disabilities who want to use
the handyDART service may also be asked to provide handyDART
registration information. This information will be kept confidential.
Booking a Trip
To book a trip, call Comox Valley Transit 24 hours before the
trip window in which you wish to travel (see below for trip
times). Comox Valley Transit can be reached at 339-5442 from
8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Monday to Friday. At other times,
a telephone answering service will provide recorded information.
There are two types of trip bookings:
- Regular subscription trips once a week or more often, such
as for therapy appointments or to and from work
- One-time trips for other purposes such as shopping, social
visits or recreation activities.
The times listed below show the approximate times when service
will be available to each area. Service operates Monday to Friday,
not including Statutory
Holidays. When you book your trip, the dispatcher will provide
you with a closer estimate of your pick-up time as well as the
approximate drop-off time at your destination. The dispatcher
can also help you coordinate transfers onto the regular Comox
Valley Transit System.
