NANAIMO — Transit services in the Regional District of Nanaimo are going to change, with both fares and services expanding in March.

The RDN and BC Transit reported this week that 5,000 hours of transit service will be added, with more frequent trips to commercial areas and major hubs, such as the Departure Bay ferry terminal, Vancouver Island University and Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

As well, starting March 1, transit fares will rise by 25 cents, from $2.25 to $2.50 for adults and from $2 to $2.25 for students and seniors.

Tickets, monthly passes, and other fare programs will also rise accordingly.
