A new rapid transit bus will begin running between the West Shore and downtown Victoria in the next three years, BC Transit announced today.
The Victoria Regional RapidBus Implementation Strategy was created from 2020's South Island Transportation Strategy. After the first "RapidBus" route is established, the plan is to add the service to the Saanich Peninsula and the University of Victoria.
The goal of RapidBus is to provide an option for commuters that is faster than driving, while also being comfortable and reliable.
Efficient and convenient transportation is a key advocacy priority for The Chamber as a way to connect more people to potential employers in the region.
