A transit study has identified preferred exchange locations in south Courtenay, the downtown core and at North Island College.

In the south part of the city, officials suggest four platforms at Cliffe Avenue about 160 metres from the entrance to Driftwood Mall. A new sidewalk is recommended on the mall’s main driveway.

For downtown, an on-street configuration is suggested on Fitzgerald Avenue between Fifth and Sixth streets, allowing for shelters and wide sidewalks. A new marked crosswalk and curb extensions are recommended at Sixth and Fitzgerald, in anticipation of greater pedestrian activity.

At the college, four bus bays could be accommodated on the east side of the campus next to the Aquatic Centre.

The final study will be forwarded to the regional district board in the winter.
