Input wanted for upcoming changes to transit lines

Changes being planned for updates to Agassiz, Harrison, Hope transit system

  • Feb. 24, 2012 6:00 p.m.

Transit ridership is healthy in Agassiz, filling the buses regularly even after services were doubled.

But there are grander plans for even more expansion of services, and BC Transit wants to hear feedback from the community. Open houses will be held next week, in four communities.

The first is Monday, Feb. 27 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Evergreen Hall in Chilliwack. Then, Tuesday, Feb. 28 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Hope. The third will be in Agassiz, at Kent Municipal Hall from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 29 and the final public hearing will be on Thursday, March 1 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Harrison Memorial Hall.

You will be able to view proposed transit service changes in Chilliwack scheduled for summer 2012, and longer term changes for Chilliwack, Agassiz, Harrison and Hope. This is the final opportunity to provide feedback on the 25-year Transit Future Plan.
