With a 65 per cent reduction in ridership since the COVID-19 pandemic began, BC Transit operations in Kamloops will be moving to the summer schedule next week.

Summer (less frequent) service will begin on Sunday, April 5.

Changes will be seen on routes 1 (Tranquille), 2 (Parkcrest), 3 (Westsyde), 4 (Pacific Way), 7 (Aberdeen), 9 (Gleneagles), 10 (TRU Express) and 17 (Dallas).

BC Transit said service on routes 1 (Tranquille) and 9 (Gleneagles) will continue to provide frequent weekday trips at peak travel times in the mornings and afternoons.

Due to the pandemic, each bus is limited to 20 passengers, all of whom (aside from those needing assistance due to disabilities) must enter and exit through rear doors.

Until further notice, payment is not being collected.
