New Buses rolled out for Slocan Valley

The RDCK and BC Transit are thrilled to announce that three brand-new mid-sized buses are serving transit users in the Slocan Valley.

The new buses were rolled out on September 14th; each one holds 30 seated passengers.

"The new buses are part of BC Transit’s fleet replacement strategy," said Randy Matheson, research analyst for the Regional District of Central Kootenay. "The RDCK is delighted to offer our valley riders these new vehicles, which offer comfort and reliability," added Matheson.

"One of the previous vehicles had over 1 million kilometres on the odometer so it was time to upgrade our fleet," said Martin Gould, transit coordinator for Arrow and Slocan Lakes Community Services, the company that operates the service in the valley.

The buses will also be used on other routes within the RDCK’s service area, as required.
