Corporate Infrastructure Initiatives

UVic Transit Exchange Project:

This project included the rehabilitation of the north side of the existing UVic Exchange and bus stops along Ring Road that was originally constructed in 1995. The upgrades included refurbishment and enhancement of approximately nine bus bays, six bus shelters, and two layover bays as well as the redevelopment of surrounding pedestrian and bicycle storage infrastructure. University of Victoria students, faculty, and staff, as well as residents of the area, now benefit from better access to public transit, higher quality pathways, and increased access to active transportation infrastructure in the Oak Bay and Saanich areas.

This rehabilitation project was the second phase of development of transit infrastructure at UVic and aligns the overall passenger experience with the Phase 1 expansion on the adjacent side of Finnerty Road that was completed in 2015. The Government of Canada invested more than $1.7 million in this project and the Government of British Columbia provided over $1.4 million. The University of Victoria and the Victoria Regional Transit Commission both contributed a combined total of over $356,000.
