Improved bus service to 19 Wing Comox

The Comox Valley Regional District and BC Transit are introducing changes to improve commuter trips to 19 Wing Canadian Forces Base Comox.

Effective May 21, the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and BC Transit are introducing changes to improve commuter trips to 19 Wing Canadian Forces Base Comox.

Riders at the base, one of the largest employers in the Comox Valley with more than 1,200 military and civilian staff, can expect improved morning run times on Route 11 Little River to 19 Wing Comox, plus enhanced afternoon trips on Route 99 VMP Connector from 19 Wing Comox.

Additional trips on Routes 1 Fitzgerald, 2 Cumberland and 4 Comox via Comox Road are also being introduced May 21. A total of 350 annual service hours are being added to the Comox Valley transit system.

“This service is going to provide a better transportation option for those who work on the base,” said CVRD board chair Edwin Grieve. “We’re always looking for more ways to make transit a viable choice for commuters, and having more convenient times in the morning and afternoon should make taking the bus an easy and enjoyable way to get to and from work at 19 Wing.”

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