Public Transit in the Comox Valley
The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) partners with BC Transit and contractor Watson & Ash to deliver public transit services in the Comox Valley.
Return to Front Door Loading and Fare Collection June 1, 2020
BC Transit enhanced safety measures for our provincial transit systems that allowed for a return to front door loading and collection of fares in all BC Transit communities on June 1, 2020. With the change, fares will be collected on conventional, community, and handyDART services.
Where to Purchase Bus Passes and Tickets
The Rexall Pharmacy in Comox and the Rexall Pharmacy in Courtenay are currently open to the public for purchases while many of the other outlets remain closed. If transit customers are unable to make it to either Rexall, they can call the CVRD main office at 250-334-6000 or the CVRD Sports Centre at 250-334-9622 between Monday and Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, to make a purchase over the phone with a credit card. The passes or tickets will then be mailed to the customer so please call 3-5 business days in advance of when the passes or tickets are required. In addition, bus riders can purchase a ticket or daypass onboard the bus with cash.

Our transit system serves most of the Comox Valley and links up with the Campbell River transit system at the Oyster River.
The provincial government oversees public transit through BC Transit, working in partnership with local government and various local transit management companies. Together, these groups set fare levels, establish schedules, gather public feedback and review growth patterns to determine future expansion of the system.
