Cowichan bus times tweaked
Dec 20 2011
The Cowichan commuter transit bus schedule will be tweaked in February to accommodate more passengers travelling between Greater Victoria and the Cowichan Valley.
Currently, two routes run to and from Victoria — one from Duncan and the other from Cobble Hill, which serves Shawnigan Lake.
Passengers have a choice of four runs leaving Duncan between 5:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. each morning, and returning from the intersection of Government and Superior streets between 3:45 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. each afternoon.
The Shawnigan-Cobble Hill passengers can catch buses that leave Cobble Hill at 5:51 a.m. and 6:41 a.m., arriving at Government and Superior at 7:15 a.m. and 8:15 a.m.
There's heavy congestion on the 3:45 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. runs to Duncan each afternoon and the schedule changes are aimed at easing that, B.C. Transit spokeswoman Joanna Linsangan said.
The new schedule will see Duncan-bound buses leaving Government at Superior at 3:45, 4:10, 4:45 and 5:15 p.m.
