BC Transit offering free public transit on Monday to celebrate Earth Day


Residents and visitors alike, you’ll want to hear this!

BC Transit will be offering free public transit on Monday, April 22nd in recognition of Earth Day.

Yes, you read that right—completely free for the whole day!

They believe that Earth Day highlights the importance of sustainability and encourages others to make choices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Taking public transit is one way to make a difference, so they wanted to make that as easy and accessible as possible for anyone taking a fixed bus route or using handyDART services.

In a media release, BC Transit has shared their active commitment to furthering their positive impact on the environment—this includes the Low Carbon Fleet Program, which is underway. 

The program supports CleanBC and their provincial targets for greenhouse gas emissions. 

Across the province, there are over 280 Compressed Natural Gas buses so far, with funding now secured for an additional 141 electric buses. 

You can use the Transit App, Google Transit, or any other app that provides real-time bus tracking to plan your transit journey.
