Looks like it’s a snow day, Victoria!

BC Transit has suspended all service in Greater Victoria Tuesday morning due to heavy snowfall overnight.

In addition, BC Ferries and other agencies are also warning of cancellations as road conditions throughout the region remain unsafe.

Heavy snowfall continues to fall with amounts in the region tallying up to 25 cm overnight.

“Due to recent snowfall and challenging driving conditions, all service is currently suspended in the Victoria Regional Transit System,” BC Transit said in a statement just before 6:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.

“BC Transit is closely monitoring conditions and our team is working hard to resume service.”

Service is also currently suspended in the Cowichan Valley Regional Transit system.

In a tweet, BC Ferries said multiple routes have been impacted.

As of this publication, most sailings have been cancelled or delayed between Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.

Highway maintenance contractor, Emcon Services, is asking drivers to avoid travel if possible with an advisory in effect for Highway 1 from Langford to Mill Bay.

As of 5 a.m., Victoria saw upwards of 25 cm of snowfall with more expected this morning.

The snow has forced the closure and cancellation of many other services in the region as well.

The CRD says all scheduled blue box collection is cancelled today due to unsafe weather in the region. Those affected are advised to hold their recycling until their next collection day.
