At Tuesday’s (Jan. 12) meeting, the board also approved 600 additional hours for September to address service gaps in the Back Road area.

“This expansion would provide better transit service throughout the K’ómoks First Nation IR number one area of the community,” said Michael Zbarsky, the CVRD’s manager of transit and facilities.
