Starting Monday, BC Transit users in Campbell River will have a new travel experience. Front-door loading and fare collection will begin once again on June 1, after being paused since mid-March for the COVID-19 pandemic.

BC Transit is installing a temporary vinyl panel on buses without a full driver door to allow for physical distancing.

In addition to these changes, Campbell River transit users will have a fare change on June 1. It was initially planned for April, but with a change in operating procedures during the pandemic, the fare change was delayed.
