- discontinuation of route 3 Central

- Schedule changes and service hour reductions
- discontinuation of Saturday service
- Removal and relocation of bus stops
The fare change that is effect next Wednesday, July 1, will introduce the DayPASS-on-Board program to the Dawson Creek Transit System. The DayPASS will offer unlimited use of the transit system for that day. They can be purchased exclusively on the bus for $4.50 or exchanged for two bus tickets. As part of the change, bus drivers will no longer issue transfers.
There will also be an introduction of the Family Travel Program, which will offer any adult customers (19+) with a valid pass, either Monthly, DayPASS or, BC Bus PASS, the option to bring four children (12 and under) on board for free.
This program will help children become comfortable and confident using the transit system, helping to increase transit use in the future.
