Cowichan Valley Regional District and the Regional District of Nanaimo

In March 2021, the Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD) and Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) boards endorsed the CVRD/RDN Interregional Transit  Service Discussion Document  and directed BC Transit and its partners to proceed with implementation planning for the preferred option.

The preferred service option was recommended based on market demand studies and extensive key stakeholder and public engagement. More information about the proposed service option, routing, timelines, and next steps can be found in the Service Discussion Document .
