Local Area Transit Plans

South Nanaimo Local Area Transit Plan 

The Regional District of Nanaimo and BC Transit are developing a Local Area Transit Plan for the South Nanaimo area. 

The Plan will define interim improvements for transit service and infrastructure over the next 7 years.

Based on what we heard during the engagement as part of the Transit Future Plan, these are the priorities for the South Nanaimo area:

  • Realign routes to provide more direct service between key destinations and neighborhood centres
  • Provide more frequent service and longer service hours on the Local Transit Network
  • Provide better service information e.g. real time, online schedules and information
  • Provide better bus stop amenities e.g. benches, shelters, and bike racks
  • Introduce Transit Priority measures such as transit signal priority or queue jumper lanes
