Transit plans moving along in Fraser Cascade area

Route between Hope and Agassiz could be realized soon, say transit officials

Plans to expand BC Transit’s service to Agassiz, Harrison and Hope could be realized in the next few years.

Over the past several months, BC Transit has been speaking as delegations at Harrison Hot Springs, Agassiz and Hope councils to provide information about the upcoming expansion of services.

Plans to start routes between Agassiz and Hope could be realized in as soon as one to three years, depending on the outcome of feasibility studies.

BC Transit has also announced it will increase the number of trips between Chilliwack and Harrison Hot Springs, with stops in Agassiz, to include better evening service, and Sunday service, as well as increasing to hourly service during the work week, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

BC Transit is also looking into the possibility of running service between the District of Kent and Mission, which would open up transit options to people in Harrison Mills, Deroche and Lake Errock.

Most recently, BC Transit asked councils to endorse their Transit Future Plan as the guiding document for transit planning over the next 25 years.
