We heard you and here are the changes!

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

The Regional District of Nanaimo’s Board of Directors approved a transit service
expansion plan based on recommendations from the South Nanaimo Local Area Transit Plan, which will be rolled out in January 2020 to address ridership growth.
The expansion involves the addition of 5,900 annual conventional transit hours involving the creation of two new routes, the adjustment of three existing routes and an increase in holiday coverage to
include Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and Good Friday.

The service expansion will include the implementation of two new routes:

  • 8 Cedar/VIU: Connecting the community of Cedar to Vancouver Island University
  • 78 YCD Airport via Cassidy/Downtown: Connecting Nanaimo to the communities of Cassidy, South Wellington and the Nanaimo Airport
Other service changes include:

  • 7 Cinnabar/Downtown: Which will no longer service the Cedar area and will now travel directly between Cinnabar and Downtown, connecting to the number 8 Cedar/VIU at South Parkway Plaza, reducing trip times by up to 40 minutes
  • 30 NRGH to Woodgrove/Downtown: Will see route adjustments to match service with demand
  • Sunday-level service will also be added level service on Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and Good Friday
