Construction project in Hope means bus diversion starting today

Bus riders will have to flag down driver for Route 22

Transit users in Hope and Agassiz have a deviation to be aware of starting July 22, and continuing until August.

The deviation is for Route 22, and is due to construction on Park St. and Third Avenue in Hope.

Exact completetion date is still to be determined, so BC Transit could not provide an end date for the disruption.

But starting July 22, the stop on Park at Third will be closed. Buses will drop passengers near Park and Fourth, and will also pick up passengers in that vicinity. BC Transit says they are unable to put a temporary stop in at this location, so riders are asked to flag the bus down to board.

Route 22 to Hope

From Highway 1, the bus will turn left on Coquihalla St., travel on Coquihalla St. to Fourth Ave., turn right on Fourth Ave. to Park St., then left on Park to resume regular routing.

Route 22 to Agassiz

From the timing point on Third Ave., the bus will make an immediate left on Commission Street to Highway 1. The bus will then turn right on Highway 1 to resume regular routing.

“This deviation should have little effect on the timing of the bus, but will inconvenience some passengers,” BC Transit said in an email. “We apologize for this disruption, and will resume regular routing on completetion of this construction project. We thank you for your patience in this matter.”
