Beach bus and kayaks – a winning combo this weekend

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) wants to make sure you “get on the bus” to Goose Spit this summer, and has teamed up with Comox Valley Kayaks and Canoes to offer a one-hour free kayak rental to the first five people who take the bus to the Spit on Saturday July 28 and check in with the CVRD's transit educator, Karlee Holm, on-site at the Spit from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Goose Spit is such a great place to spend a weekend day at the beach, and the bus is an excellent way to get people there from all over the Comox Valley,” said Michael Zbarsky, the CVRD's manager of transit and sustainability.  “Our transit educator will be at the beach, near the bus stop, with information on routes and riding, pop and chips for bus riders, and – for the lucky first five who take the bus and check in with her – a free one-hour kayak rental from Comox Valley Kayaks and Canoes, that you can use at your convenience.”

The summer bus to Goose Spit can be caught on Comox Avenue in front of the Comox Museum, and runs from late morning to early evening on weekends. Alternatively, the beach bus is scheduled to meet up with the #3 and #4 Comox buses which connect to other buses at North Island College, Driftwood Mall, and downtown Courtenay at 4th Street and Cliffe Avenue.

The Comox Valley Regional District partners with BC Transit and contractor Watson & Ash to deliver transit service in the Comox Valley.

The Comox Valley Regional District is a federation of three electoral areas and three municipalities providing sustainable services for residents and visitors to the area. The members of the regional district work collaboratively on services for the benefit of the diverse urban and rural areas of the Comox Valley.
