In support of Transit Future, BC Transit has repurposed a senior bus to create a mobile open house space for public participation. Heres where weve been
Between April 2-4, Kelowna residents were invited to come on board
our Transit Future Bus and learn more about the Kelowna RapidBus Project,
coming soon to West
Kelowna and the Westbank First Nation.
We were pleased to engage in countless great conversations about the
project, and answer people's questions.
Information in the form of posters, maps, photos, graphs, etc. were
posted throughout the bus, and our Transit Future team was there to
discuss it all.
Our Transit Future bus visited Vernon, Coldstream and Lumby between
March 14 and 18, 2013. The Transit Future team received lots of great
feedback on transit service in the area.
Coldstream lived up to its chilly-sounding name during the Transit Future Bus visit, but the snow didn't stop the Transit Future team from having a great day, or deter locals from stopping by!
Students at Clarence Fulton Secondary listened eagerly, explored and
shared their thoughts on board the bus.
From December 1-7, 2012 our Transit Future Bus visited the Sunshine
Coast. On December 4, we were pleased to welcome 132 people on board
the Transit Future bus at the Sechelt Canadian Tire!
This little boy showed us his vision for the future of transit on the
Sunshine Coast through his art.
At Cheatelech Secondary, we chatted with 25 Media 9 students and a
Communications class of 10 on board the Transit Future bus.
On board the BC Ferries, our Transit Future team talked with passengers
to hear their thoughts on public transit on the Sunshine Coast. What
a beautiful ferry ride from Horsehoe Bay to Langdale!
Between October 25 and October 31, 2012 we welcomed over 1300 people
on board the Transit Future bus in the North Okanagan.
We appreciate visions for the future of transit in all forms - but
one of our favourite methods is the carefully created artwork of young
Sharing thoughts for the future of transit in the North Okanagan by
playing "the Game Plan" at our iPad station
After great visits in Vernon, Lumby, Coldstream and Armstrong, the
Transit Future bus concluded its time in the North Okanagan, taking
with us lots of great information from local residents.
The first stop was the Nanaimo Pumpkin Festival. Many young riders
came on board fully decked out in their trick-or-treating attire.
Outdoor festivals can require a lot of walking, so this little guy was fortunate enough to find his own alternative method of transportation. Meanwhile Mom shared her vision for the future of transit in RDN.
Like many of the people that come on board, this gentleman had many
interesting transit stories to share with us.
A big thanks to everyone in Nanaimo, Cedar, Lantzville, Parksville,
and Qualicum Beach who came on board the bus and helped us shape our
RDN 25 year Transit Future Plan!
