COURTENAY, B.C- A pair of bus stops have been moved to be closer to Courtenay’s new hospital.

According to a release from the municipal government, the move is being made after consultation with the Comox Valley Regional District and BC Transit. The pre-existing bus stops along both sides of Lerwick Road will be moved from Mission Road to Waters Place.

Signage has now been installed, and buses will be stopping at both the old and new locations starting on Monday, Dec. 18. The old locations will be phased out by Friday, Dec. 22.
