Help shape Nelson’s public transportation future

BC Transit is holding two open houses this week to hear the communities thoughts on changes proposed to Nelson public transportation.

  • Apr. 25, 2012 8:00 a.m.

BC Transit wants Nelson area residents to shape their own public transportation future.

Nelson Transit is steeped in a rich 100 year history and now BC Transit says the future of it and the Central Kootenay Transit System is up to the community.

Two open houses will be held on Thursday, April 26 from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the downtown Nelson bus exchange and on Friday, April 27 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Chahko Mika Mall.

Nelson residents are urged to vote on proposed changes that include more direct and frequent transit routes in the City of Nelson, suggested improvements for regional connections to the North Shore, Castlegar and the Slocan Valley and a proposed transit hub at Playmor Junction.

BC Transit also wants input on future priorities.

An online survey is also available for people who cannot attend the open houses. Share your opinion on the future of transit in the Nelson area at bctransit.com until May 8.

BC Transit will report the findings of the Nelson open houses and the online survey in the summer of 2012.
