Highway 16 Transit Service

As part of a comprehensive Highway 16 Five Point Action Plan, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) has committed $2.4 million in funding over a three year period to improve transit services along the Highway 16 corridor.

In collaboration with community leaders, BC Transit has undertaken a detailed analysis to confirm the feasibility, scope and costs of extended or enhanced inter-community public transit linkages along the Highway 16 corridor. In partnership with First Nations and local community partners, BC Transit undertook public engagement on those proposed transit options from August 17 to September 16, 2016.

The results and further details of the public engagement are available on the Public Consultation section of this website.

Based on local funding approvals, implementation plans are being developed and finalized.
