Cowichan Valley Service Update March 19

Mar 20, 2020
Transit System: Cowichan Valley

BC Transit, the Cowichan Valley Regional District and our local transit staff are continuing to work to ensure we have service on the road for customers that need to get to work, including health care facilities, and going out for groceries or other needs.

We are implementing rear door boarding in to enhance physical distancing for drivers and passengers for the next 30 days. Passengers can still load through the front door if they require use of the ramp or other accessible features of the bus.

In addition, fares will not be collected in the Cowichan Valley for the next 30 days.

BC Transit continues to adjust to the fluid situation along with other businesses and agencies in Canada and around the world. We are working to match ridership with demand and we may experience daily trip cancellations for the foreseeable future. We will update customers on a day-by-day basis while we work on implementing and communicating a new sustainable plan for service.

We encourage people to stay up to date for daily trip cancellations at, or through our customer call centre.
