Creston Valley residents can have their voices heard when BC Transit and the Regional District of Central Kootenay host an open house on Feb. 14, part of a provincial government review of public transit.

“This is a great opportunity to work with BC Transit to remodel the Creston Valley transit system,” said John Kettle, Area B director and RDCK board chair. “We need to provide a transit system for our residents that is both functional and sustainable for the future.”

The open house, which runs from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Creston and District Community Complex, offers residents a chance to review transit options and provide feedback on how to deliver effective transit that meets the community’s needs.

“It is important that the local community has had the opportunity to provide comments,” said Manuel Achadinha, president and CEO of BC Transit. “Successful transit requires the input of the community.”

An online survey is also available for residents to provide their comments. The feedback from the open house and the online survey will be used by BC Transit and the RDCK to make recommendations for the local transit system.

Funding for the Creston Valley transit system is cost shared between the Regional District of Central Kootenay and BC Transit.
