Starting today, BC Transit users will have a new travel experience. Front-door loading and fare collection will begin once again on June 1, after being paused since mid-March for the COVID-19 pandemic.

BC Transit has installed a temporary vinyl panel on buses without a full driver door to allow for physical distancing.

In addition to these changes, Campbell River transit users will have a fare change on June 1. It was initially planned for April, but with a change in operating procedures during the pandemic, the fare change was delayed.

Some users will be paying more for a one-way trip, while others will pay less.

Day passes will also be available on buses in the area. Coined DayPASS by BC Transit, the passes will be available exclusively from bus drivers for $4 or two bus tickets. With the addition of the day pass, transfers no longer be available.
