No fares are being charged for the next 30 days on Cowichan Valley transit, including the Cowichan Valley Commuter, Route 44 Duncan/Victoria, local routes, and handyDART.
Refund requests for March monthly passes or semester passes were unable to be processed, but passholders are asked to keep their pass as it will be accepted for a period of time after regular fare service resumes.
BC Transit has implemented rear door boarding on local Cowichan Valley routes to enhance social distancing for drivers and passengers.
Boarding can still be done through the front door if use of the ramp or other accessible features of the bus are required. Passengers using the Cowichan Valley Commuter, Route 44 Duncan/Victoria, handyDART and community buses will continue to enter and exit through the single entry front door.
There is no change in service levels at this time. Any changes will be announced and posted through the BC Transit web alert system.
