FORT NELSON, B.C. –  The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality has penned a letter to the province in support of bettering bus services.

Council issue the letter to the Minister of Transporation and Infrastructure, Rob Fleming, supporting a letter submitted by the Board of School Trustees Vice-Chair Bill Dolan.

Dolan’s letter outlines the limited passenger service on the Alaska Highway for Fort Nelson and Northeast B.C residents.

Dolan states the current services by Northern Health Bus, and BC Bus travels are inconvenient. The services travel in the middle of the week, which results in less frequent use.

Dolan suggests taking the Northern Health Bus and the BC Bus, two separate services, and combining them. Creating a small or medium-sized coach that can make three trips per week between Fort Nelson and Fort St. John and Dawson Creek. Dolan also suggests coordinating it with Alberta passenger transportation services.

The service would require to be an essential public transit service for Fort Nelson residents, the NRRM, and the Northeast altogether.
