Public Transit

Public Transit runs buses called “School Specials”

BC Transit created Trip Sheets as a handy reference to help riders, particularly secondary students, locate the most feasible route and bus stop to get to and from their respective school. To ensure the most up-to-date routes and timings, we suggest using the Trip Sheets as a refence and confirming details on routes with BC Transit.
