Student Transit Priorities

The TRU Students’ Union and BC Transit are partnering to consult students on their priorities for additional hours to the Kamloops transit system. On Wednesday, November 30 from 2-4pm there will be stations set up in Old Main for students to indicate the routes and times that they believe should have increased transit service.

“As students we are the largest group of transit riders in the Kamloops community so it is important to have our voices heard,” said Amber Storvold, Vice-President External of TRUSU. “There are an additional 3000 hours available that could lead to increased frequency of service, later evening service, or better weekend service – we need students to come out and let BC Transit know what they want.”

In addition to leaving comments on where transit service should be expanded, students will also have the opportunity to let BC Transit know if they are having any issues with transfers or frequently late buses.

“This is a great opportunity for students to have a role in determining the future of transit in Kamloops,” said Storvold. “Many students rely on transit for their primary form of transportation, so it’s important that the system works well for them.”
