BC Transit and the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) are announcing a seasonal  service change in the Regional District of Nanaimo Transit System effective Sunday, September 5, 2021. 

The organizations say this seasonal service change will reinstate service levels on several routes to coincide with the start  of the school year. They say it will also increase connections between routes and amend the Route 25 ferry shuttle to  align with BC Ferries’ Departure Bay – Horseshoe Bay schedule.  

The service change will include some extra trips on routes: 

1 Downtown/Country Club 

5 Fairview 

11 Lantzville 

15/15A VIU/Woodgrove 

20/20A Hammond Bay/Dover 

30 NRGH 

40 VIU Express 

92 Hammond Bay 

BC Transit also reminds customers that beginning September 1, 2021, all children 12 and under can ride BC Transit for free. More information on that program is available here
