New Rural Transit Service
Effective September 5, 2017, two new transit routes will be providing regular and On Request service to rural areas. Route 13 Seal Bay/Merville and Route 14 Union Bay will operate Tuesdays and Thursdays, offering three trips per day on each route. In addition to providing regular service, these routes will also offer On Request pick-ups and drop-offs for those who may have difficulty catching the bus along the regular route. Pick-ups can be arranged by calling 250-339-5442 24 hours in advance, and drop-offs can be arranged by asking the driver upon boarding.

Courtenay-Comox Express Service
The 34 C2C Express is a new service that travels between downtown Courtenay and downtown Comox during peak weekday commuter periods. With limited stops, trip time is less than 20 minutes! Here is a map and schedule to assist you with trip planning, or you can use the trip planner on BC Transit's website.
Transit service Improvements
CVRD made the following service improvements for the Comox Valley transit system in January 2015:
- A revised Courtenay to Comox express (#34 C2C Express) with limited stops focused on peak commuter periods and enabling access to a higher number of residents.
- A weekday amendment to the existing southbound routing of the #12 north valley connecter to allow North Island College (NIC) students from north of Courtenay to get directly to the campus rather than requiring them to transfer at the downtown exchange.
- An amendment to the existing #2 Cumberland routing to enable better access through a significantly denser residential area of Cumberland including the recently developed Ulverston Station neighbourhood.
These improvements have been developed from the draft CVRD board-approved Transit Future Plan public and stakeholder consultation and from board direction to prioritize improvements with the highest ridership and revenue potential.
