March 20, 2020 – BC Transit, the District of Kitimat and local transit staff are continuing to work to ensure there is service on the road for customers who need to get to work, including to health care facilities, and going out for groceries or other needs.

BC Transit is implementing rear door boarding to enhance social distancing for drivers and passengers. Passengers can still load through the front door if they require use of the ramp or other accessible features of the bus.

In addition, the District of Kitimat has subsidized all fares, so no fares will be collected on BC Transit in Kitimat only.

BC Transit continues to adjust to the fluid situation along with other businesses and agencies in Canada and around the world. They are working to match ridership with demand and they may experience daily trip cancellations for the foreseeable future. BC Transit will update customers on a day-by-day basis while they work on implementing and communicating a new sustainable plan for service.

People are encouraged to stay up to date for daily trip cancellations at BCTransit.com, or through their customer call centre.
