Phase Two of Transit Future Planning

COMOX VALLEY – The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and BC Transit are bringing the Transit Future Bus back for a second round of community consultations from April 23 to April 26, 2014.

The Transit Future Team will be travelling with the bus and will seek feedback on the proposed transit network that was developed following phase one consultations. The team will also be available to answer questions.

The Transit Future Bus first toured the Comox Valley last summer, seeking public opinion in order to develop the region’s 25-year Transit Future Plan. During the first phase more than 1,700 people shared their vision for the future of transit.

The Transit Future Bus is a 40-foot decommissioned bus that has been transformed in to an interactive public consultation tool. Look for the bus at popular destinations including the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market and the Earth Week Festival. A total of 11 stops are scheduled.
