Revised October 2016 Proposals

Revised service options based on public consultation results were developed and shared with local decision makers in October 2016 for their consideration and approval. BC Transit staff continue to work together with them on local funding approval and routing adjustments to implement transit services. More information about implementation will be shared as funding agreements are completed.

An additional area segment (Hazeltons Area to Smithers) has been added in recognition that further enhancement to existing service in this area is warranted to meet transportation needs and to bring regional services to a consistent level across the corridor. Therefore, the service area segments addressed by Highway 16 inter-community transit service initiative are as follows:

  • Burns Lake to Prince George
  • Burns Lake to Smithers
  • Hazeltons Area (including Moricetown) to Smithers (existing service)
  • Hazeltons Area to Terrace
  • Prince Rupert to Terrace
