Transit: 2 for 1 Tuesdays!

West Kootenay – Every Tuesday in December will be a 2 for 1 Tuesday in the West Kootenays.  On these days, all passengers who bring a travel buddy on board will pay only one fare. All fare products will be accepted, including cash and monthly passes, for the 2 for 1 program.

BC Transit is proud to be partnering with the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, the Regional District Central Kootenay and the City of Nelson to support this initiative, which makes it even easier for locals to use environmentally-friendly public transportation.

The West Kootenaysas a region has already experienced exceptional growth in transit usage. In 2015/2016, ridership increased across all three transit systems, including 10 per cent in Nelson, seven per cent in Kootenay Boundary, and eight per cent in Kootenay Lake West. This promotion will only support further growth moving forward.

Please note that this promotion does not apply to handyDART and Health Connections services.
