With construction on the 5th Street bridge starting April 15th, BC Transit is giving riders a look at what changes on the way

The company says most trip times will be impacted throughout the six month project.

Part of the Downtown Exchange (stop on Cliffe Avenue) will be relocated across the street from its current location to the other side of Cliffe Avenue. 

The other two stops at the Downtown Exchange located on 4th Avenue will remain in place.

BC Transit, the Comox Valley Regional District and the City of Courtenay are asking customers to look at updated detour routes, bus stop locations and schedules on the BC Transit website to stay up to date on any changes.

 A new Rider’s Guide with details of the changes will also be available for customers to pick up on or view online. 

BC Transit is also reminding passengers that face masks are required on all buses.
