Bus Stops in Rural Areas

In rural areas with no designated bus stops, the bus driver will stop for "flag stops". When you want to catch the bus, find a safe location along the route and wave the bus down.

A safe location is one where visibility is good and where the bus can easily pull off the road, such as a driveway or postal box area.

Make sure you are visible, especially at night. Carry a flashlight, or stand in a well-lit area. Wearing clothing with reflective material will help you to be seen.

This works the same for getting off the bus. Ask the driver to find a safe place to stop close to where you wish to get off.

For more information about bus stops in rural areas, call Transit Information at 250-847-4993

Fixed-Route Deviations

There is extra time built into the Smithers-Telkwa schedule for the bus to make deviations of up to 500 metres from the fixed route to pick passengers who have mobility issues. For pick-up, call 250-847-4993. For drop off, inform your driver where you need to be dropped off.
