New 2022 BC Transit Rider’s Guide: Effective from Sept 5th – Jan 1st

BC Transit has released the latest Rider’s Guide (Effective from Sept 5th 2022 to Jan 1st 2023) along with some seasonal service changes for the Victoria Regional Transit System.

2022 BC Transit Bus Schedule

With schools resuming classes many school related schedules need to resume, of particular note is that route 17 (Cedar Hill) and route 81 (Brentwood/Saanichton/Sidney/Swartz Bay) will be restored to full capacity.

Smaller Changes

BC Transit also listed some smaller changes to the Victoria BC bus routes/schedules:

  • Route 1 (South Oak Bay/Downtown) will run along Fairfield to Douglas instead of Belleville
  • Routes 70 and 71 (Swartz Bay/Downtown) will serve new stops at Mount Newton Cross road in both directions
  • Route 51 (Langford/UVic) will receive additional trips to support the demand but will no longer operate with a double decker bus
  • Routes 30 (Royal Oak Exchange/Downtown), 31 (Royal Oak Exchange/Downtown) and 75 (Saanichton/Royal Oak/Downtown) will begin and end at Belleville westbound

While many services, such as Google Maps offer route planning with live bus times, the current BC Transit information for Victoria is also available online.
