Discount bus rides for Empire Days

On May 20, buses are $1 between downtown Courtenay and downtown Cumberland to honour the 125th anniversary of Empire Days.

On May 20, the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and BC Transit are offering discount rides of just $1 on a special service bus between downtown Courtenay and downtown Cumberland to honour the 125th anniversary of Empire Days.

The special No. 2 Cumberland bus will run from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Transit customers are urged to take advantage of the park and ride area at the Driftwood Mall in Courtenay.

“You can’t get much for a dollar these days, so that makes the one dollar bus ride to Empire Days even more amazing,” said Edwin Grieve, chair of the CVRD’s board of directors.  “For just a loonie, you can ride in comfort and convenience to the Cumberland celebrations, come back the same way, and leave your car and parking worries behind.”

For more information on transit services in the Comox Valley, call 250-339-5453 or visit www.bctransit.com/regions/com.

The Comox Valley Regional District is a federation of three electoral areas and three municipalities providing sustainable services for residents and visitors to the area.
