Future Bus returns

The Comox Valley Regional District and BC Transit are bringing back the Transit Future Bus for a second round of community consultations from April 23 to 26.

The vehicle is a 40-foot decommissioned bus transformed into an interactive public consultation tool.

A team will travel with the bus and seek feedback on a proposed transit network that was developed following phase one consultations. The team will be available to answer questions.

The Future Bus first toured the Valley last summer, seeking public opinion to develop a 25-year plan for the region. More than 1,700 people shared their vision for the future of transit.

Look for the bus at popular destinations including the Farmers’ Market and Earth Week festival. Eleven stops are scheduled.

Surveys are available until May 9 at
