Starting in 2013, BC Transit will no longer offer service between the Elk Valley and the South Country.
“The ridership numbers are extremely low and the cost of the service is extremely high,” said Shannon Moskal, Community Services Manager for the RDEK.
BC Transit currently runs a bus loop connecting the two areas every Thursday. The route begins in Fernie and includes stops in Grasmere, Baynes Lake, Jaffrey, and Elko.
The service will continue for the next few months, and will officially be discontinued on January 1, 2013.
