Nanaimo Service Update – March 19

Mar 19, 2020
Transit System: Nanaimo

BC Transit and the Regional District of Nanaimo staff are continuing to work to ensure we have service on the road for customers that need to get to work, including hospitals, and going out for groceries or other needs.

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

In addition, customers who normally pay with cash or tickets will not be required to pay.

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 expect to have 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, on NextRide, or through our customer call centre at 250-382-6161.
