Victoria Service Update – March 19
BC Transit 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.
For the next 30 days we are implementing rear door boarding in Victoria to enhance social 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, fares will be free in Victoria for the next 30 days for both the conventional and handyDART systems.
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 BCTransit.com, on NextRide, or through our customer call centre at 250-382-6161.
