There will also be no regular summer increase in the number of buses servicing usual high traffic destinations like Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal, Butchart Gardens and Thetis Lake.

On Canada Day and BC Day this year, buses will run at Sunday levels.

The transit company announced that they would resume collecting fares and allowing front door service starting June 1.

All buses that do not yet have a full driver door will be fitted with a temporary vinyl panel to create a barrier between the driver and passengers.
