Some thoughts on Prince Rupert’s transit system

I think BC Transit in Prince Rupert has a wonderful public transportation system!


I think BC Transit in Prince Rupert has a wonderful public transportation system! It runs consistently and covers most sections of the city.

What impresses about BC Transit in PR for it’s population are: the relatively short wait times; the school runs; and the free fare after 6 p.m. on New Year’s Eve run! My experiences with the BC Transit in PR has always been a positive experience, the drivers being friendly and helpful!!!

As the Crestview route only runs one way, perhaps BC Transit can somehow create a return route that way during peak times?! How about lengthening travel operations on Saturday equal to Friday runs? In upgrades there might be some consideration to chipcard bus passes for more efficiency.

I think it’s fantastic that the already well run BC Transit system in Prince Rupert is seeking to improve!
