Tk’emlups te Secwepemc residents want the new Mount Paul bus route extended later into the evening.
Tk’emlups Chief Rosanne Casimir told KTW feedback since the Mount Paul No. 18’s inception in September has been positive, but she noted some residents would like to see the service’s hours extended.
The route, which travels hourly from the downtown Lansdowne transit exchange via the Yellowhead Highway to Sun Rivers and through the reserve before looping back downtown, first leaves Lansdowne at 7 a.m. and returns at the exchange by 7 p.m.
Casimir said the service will have its first annual review within the next two months, at which time the possibility of extending the route by an hour or two will be discussed.
“We want to be able to work with everybody and see where it’s at, how it’s working, do we need to look at the different stops, do we need to tweak them,” Casimir said.
