Transit survey coming to Alberni

B.C. Transit staffers will be riding local busses next week and they have questions for riders about the new schedule and route system.

B.C. Transit staffers will be riding local busses next week and they’ve got some questions for riders about the new schedule and route system.

The development was announced at Port Alberni city council’s Oct. 8 meeting.

Two transit staff members will be riding city buses from Oct. 24-26 during the day. Their task is to engage riders and record riders’ answers to a survey. People have the option of giving their names, which will qualify them for a prize consisting of a one month bus pass.

The exercise is being done in response to new transit routes and stops that were implemented in Port Alberni last summer which saw new bus routes, greater trip frequency and a central exchange.

However, the changes weren’t met with open arms by residents, some of whom have since written to city council complaining about bus stops that have been removed and longer trips.

The transit survey will be available in hard copy at Port Alberni City Hall, as well as online at the B.C. Transit website.
