Transit users should keep an eye on bus schedules starting Monday, April 8th.
As always, spring signals a change in BC Transit operating schedules for certain routes, mainly those that service post-secondary schools.
This year, the schedule is also affected by construction and a minor route change.
- Victoria transit buses to introduce on-board announcement and tracking upgrades
- BC Transit is adding smartphone fare payment feature to buses in Victoria
Here are the details for affected routes:
16 UVic/Uptown and 76 UVic/Swartz Bay
These routes will be cancelled as of April 8th when schools are out of session. Service will resume in September.
75 Saanichton/Royal Oak/Downtown
There will be more frequent transit available for this route on Saturdays and Sundays due to increased passenger demand at Butchart Gardens.
This bus is being permanently rerouted due to a change in the road network at Douglas and Humboldt.
14 Vic General/UVic
This bus will be detoured due to upcoming construction on the Point Ellice/Bay Street Bridge, effective April 8th, prior to the construction start date.
10 James Bay/Royal Jubilee
This route will also face a detour due to the upcoming construction.
