BC Transit is making even more changes to transit in Campbell River.
Along with re-designing the transit system, the organization has added three new buses to the fleet.
City Transportation Manager Drew Hadfield believes these buses will significantly upgrade service in the area.
“These (buses) will be replacing 18 year old buses and with the new buses, we’re going to see more efficient service, efficient buses on the road.”
The new buses come equipped with closed circuit television, but Hadfield states that’s not the best feature.
“The first thing they offer is a reduction in fuel consumption. They average about 25-30% less fuel than the older buses. Associated with that is reduced emissions.”
“We’re going to be greening up our community.”
Hadfield hopes these factors will encourage even more people to use local transit.
