Starting September 5, transit users of the Prince George Transit System will enjoy expanded service hours on weekends and more efficient weekday service on several routes, including the addition of a brand new route.
These improvements are possible due to the addition of 2,500 new service hours to the system, funded by the City of Prince George and the Province of British Columbia.
Sunday service will now start one hour earlier and end one hour later. Saturday service will also see significant expansion, introducing 30-minute service between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on routes 15 UNBC/15th, 88 Westgate and 89 Hart.
As part of its fall service expansion, the Prince George Transit System will introduce route 10 Spruceland Connector, which will run between Spruceland Exchange and downtown.
To improve efficiency in the Heritage area, route 1 Heritage/10th, will now serve the neighbourhood in both directions (clockwise and counterclockwise), running every 30 minutes at peak times and every 60 minutes at other times. This will allow route 11 Heritage/10th to be discontinued to avoid redundancy.
In addition to these changes, route 15 UNBC/15th will add a morning trip on weekdays to make it easier to get to the university by 7 a.m.
Customers will also see minor changes to routes 46/47 Queensway, 88 Westgate and 89 Hart.
Buses will continue to provide Sunday-level service on Thanksgiving, Remembrance Day, Boxing Day and Family Day, with no service on Christmas or New Year’s day.
