BC Transit seeks public feedback on Columbia Valley system

Survey open until July 8th

BC Transit is seeking public feedback on the transit system in the Columbia Valley.

Through an online survey, BC Transit is looking for input in areas such as weekend service, Edgewater and Radium commuter routes, and Invermere local service.

“We are asking the public to give their feedback to help shape the future of transit in the Columbia Valley,” said Chelsea Mossey, manager of government relations for BC Transit. “We are looking for everybody [to respond]. Definitely people using transit, but also people that could potentially use it if transit could change.”

The service is a jointly-funded partnership between BC Transit and the Regional District of East Kootenay. The Columbia Valley Transit System currently provides approximately 3,500 service hours annually, with approximately 8,000 rides in the 2018/19 fiscal year. The program offers service from Edgewater to Canal Flats.

Ms. Mossey said BC Transit works to get community feedback every few years, so this is a “routine check-in” on service in the Columbia Valley. The survey opened June 4 and has had approximately 45 completed survey responses so far, said Ms. Mossey. The survey is open until July 8th.
