New Year’s bus rides

There's no reason to take any chances with other people's lives

Bus service will operate throughout the Regional District of Nanaimo on New Year’s Day 2012, thanks to a partnership between the Regional District of Nanaimo Transit System and Woodgrove Centre.

“Operating region-wide bus service on New Year’s Day will provide added value for our customers and will also help to lower greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the amount of vehicles on the road,” explained Regional District of Nanaimo chairperson Joe Stanhope.

The service provided will be the normal holiday (Sunday) schedule available in the RDN Transit System Riders’ Guide and online at rdn.bc.ca. If use is significant, the RDN will consider including the service as part of its regular scheduling.

For up-to-date information about transit schedules, check rdn.bc.ca, visit the Regional District of Nanaimo Transit System Facebook and Twitter pages, or call 250-390-4531.
