Google Transit Trip Planner
BC Transit has recently implemented the Google Transit Trip Planner for the Comox Valley transit system. The icon below will take you directly to the Comox Valley’s Google Transit Trip Planner, all you have to do is type in your origin and destination addresses, and the Trip Planner will do the rest.
Many of the Comox Valley’s top attractions are accessible by transit, and Google Transit’s Trip Planner can help you get there. Here is a list of the Top Five Transit Accessible Destinations in the Comox Valley:
- Downtown Courtenay – shopping, dining, library, Comox Valley Art Gallery, Courtenay & District Museum, Sid Williams Theatre & the Florence Filberg Centre
- Downtown Cumberland – shopping & dining, library, Village Park playground & water park, Coal Hills BMX, the Cumberland Recreation Institute, Cumberland Museum and Archives & Cumberland Community Forest walking & cycling trails
- Downtown Comox – shopping & dining, library, Marina Park, Comox Museum & Pearl Ellis Art Gallery
- Lewis Centre – the outdoor pool & water park, Simms & Lewis Parks, Lewis Centre programs & The Linc Youth Centre
- Royston – dining, Royston Seaside Trail, Royston to Cumberland Railway trail, Trent River
Google Transit's Trip Planner only provides travel directions for the regularly scheduled Comox Valley Transit routes. This means special event service, such as Empire Days, Canada Day, BC Day & the Goose Spit summer beach bus is not included in the Google Transit Trip Planner. Information about these services is available on BC Transit's Comox Valley Transit System page: http://www.busonline.ca/regions/com/ .
In rural areas with a limited number of designated bus stops, the Google Transit Trip Planner may show longer than necessary walking distances. On most rural bus routes of the CVRD, customers can 'wave' a bus down or be dropped off at their desitination if it is a safe location for the bus to stop at. Further information on flagging a bus in rural areas can be found on BC Transit's website: http://www.busonline.ca/regions/com/riderinfo/howtoride.cfm .
