Empire Days Discount

On Monday May 20, the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and BC Transit are offering discount rides of just $1 on a special service bus between downtown Courtenay and downtown Cumberland to honour the 125th anniversary of Empire Days.

The special #2 Cumberland bus will run from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Transit customers are urged to take advantage of the park and ride area at the Driftwood Mall.

“You can't get much for a dollar these days, so that makes the one dollar bus ride to Empire Days even more amazing,” said Edwin Grieve, chair of the CVRD's board of directors.  “For just a loonie, you can ride in comfort and convenience to the Cumberland celebrations, come back the same way, and leave your car and parking worries behind.”
