Residents of Salt Spring Island are being asked for feedback that will help shape the future of their transit system.
BC Transit and the Capital Regional District have launched a survey and interactive map that let transit users show where they’d like bus service the most, or suggest which transit routes need improvement.
They can also submit specific questions about the state of transit on the Southern Gulf Island.
The feedback gained will help shape the island’s transit plan, “which will support decision-making on service levels, routes and infrastructure on Salt Spring Island,” BC Transit said in a news release.
The public engagement period is scheduled to run from April 6 until May 4. To submit your feedback, visit the BC Transit website.
According to the transit operator, ridership on Salt Spring Island has grown from 100,000 users in 2014 to more than 116,000 in 2019.
The current system operates seven days a week and comprises eight routes, five light-duty buses and 8,000 service hours.
