BC Transit is making adjustments to schedules on some routes in the Victoria transit system to reflect the summer traffic levels, and in response to the labour shortage.
Routes 3, 10, 70, 71, 72, and routes servicing post-secondary institutions will see service changes.
Routes 3 and 10, will no longer interline in James Bay and will instead complete a loop in James Bay and return to Royal Jubilee Hospital.
The 70 route will have trip time adjustments for more flexibility in the event of minor ferry delays.
There will be service level improvements for routes 71 and 72.
And routes for post-secondary institutions will have service level adjustments to reflect the reduced demand over the summer period.
Additionally, BC Transit says it is facing a labour shortage and is working to recruit transit operators for transit systems across the province.
As a result, there may be temporary service reductions on some transit routes across the region.
When more operators are hired, the schedules will be updated to reflect the increased capacity.
