BC Transit and the Regional District of Central Kootenay are announcing changes to the Creston Valley transit system coming into effect Jan. 6, 2020.
The route 5 West Creston, which currently services Nicks Island Road, West Creston Road, and Highway 3, will be transitioned into an on-demand service.
The change from conventional to an on-demand service will look to promote more ridership in the Creston Valley. The on-demand service is open to any resident in the area, and bookings will be required 24 hours ahead by calling 250-428-7750. This will be a one-year pilot project to gauge ridership and demand for the new service.
The HandyDart service will remain the same, however, the change to on-demand for route 5 will provide more options for residents of all abilities in the Creston Valley. For more information on fares, routes and schedules, please visit bctransit.com/creston-valley.
