The City of Kimberley has approved funding for an additional 700 service hour transit expansion for the KC Commuter and Manager of Planning Services Troy Pollock says the survey will help determine where changes or additions need to be made if the expansion is approved.

Jonathan Dyck, Communications Manager for BC Transit, said in a press release that the survey will seek public feedback on preferred trip times for the Commuter service, in order to better serve Kimberley residents working in Cranbrook. The proposed addition will add one round trip in the morning and one round trip in the late afternoon.

“Input gathered through this process will help gauge ridership needs, which will be implemented in the fall service change,” wrote Dyck.

Ridership on the KC Commuter bus saw an increase of 1.8 per cent this season and Pollock says ridership continues to grow each year.
