Transit changes have arrived in Alberni

BC Transit releases modified bus schedule in response to public input.

PORT ALBERNI – Effective June 30, BC Transit customers in Port Alberni will see several changes to the system.

Those changes come as a direct result of face-to-face consultation and online survey responses by residents in Port Alberni, according to a BC Transit press release.

The improvements include schedule changes that will reduce transfer wait times at the main exchange.

Changes on the No. 1 Southside will see reverse routing in order to better directly serve the downtown core. Customers will also note the No. 1 Southside will include service to Harbour Quay and the Port Alberni Friendship Centre via Burde Street.

The route No. 4 Crosstown will travel to the West Coast General Hospital and the Ship Creek/Cameron loops on evenings and Sundays.

In order to deliver the best possible service to BC Transit customers, the route No. 2 Pacific Rim has been amended and will no longer travel to underutilized areas such as the Maebelle and Brandon loop.
