Transit Future in Prince George

What is Transit Future?

Transit Future is all about you, your transit system and your community. Developed with your input, these plans outline what your transit system will look like in the future. Depending on the community and its specific needs, a plan can take a variety of different forms.

Learn more about the different types of Transit Future Plans here.  By being part of the development of a Transit Future Plan, you are helping to improve transit for yourself and for your entire community. So get involved, share your input, and be a part of shaping your transit system now and for the generation to come.

Why do we need Transit Future?

Transit Future guides transit investment that is supportive of livable communities, through:

  •     Offering more transportation choice
  •     Supporting smart land use plans that focus on walking, cycling and transit
  •     Meeting climate change goals
  •     Making it easy to access everyday services on foot, by bike and by transit

Help us Plan Your Future

Population and traffic growth means we need to shift our focus from moving cars to moving people. To minimize the high economic, environmental and social costs of traffic congestion and road expansion, we must move people more efficiently. Transportation should take us where we want to go, when we want to go there. To create an efficient system, we need your input.

Prince George Transit Future Action Plan

In 2014, the Prince George Transit Future Plan was completed. Since then, many of the transit service and infrastructure priorities identified in the plan have been completed. This has included projects such as:
  • Introduction of holiday service.
  • Improvement of weekend service frequency and increasing the span of the service day.
  • Beginning to develop the Future Rapid Transit Network and the Future Frequent Transit Network.
Now it is important that the region’s transit priorities be updated to continue to guide future decision-making.
In order to update these priorities, BC Transit and the City of Prince George have started refreshing the 2014 Plan, with an updated Transit Future Action Plan anticipated in 2020.
