Buses re-routed on snowy roads

NANAIMO – Regional district has a policy in place to deal with less-than-ideal driving conditions.

Regional District of Nanaimo transit has a policy in place to deal with the less-than-ideal driving conditions that could result from the colder weather.

In the event of snow, flooding and other natural disasters, the regional district transit system will re-route buses in order to maintain efficiency and passenger and driver safety as part of its Adverse Weather Condition Policy.

According to the regional district, some examples of modifications include no service for Route 1A (Woodgrove to Downtown); no service to the Vancouver Island University exchange for Route 4 and Route 6 buses, with passenger pick up and drop off along Wakesiah Avenue.
