Bus service cut to three days per week

As of Apr. 1, the Community Bus will make stops in Ashcroft and Clinton and run on a three-day-per-week schedule.

  • Mar. 20, 2013 8:00 p.m.

Effective April 1, the local public transit services between Ashcroft and Clinton will only operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. There will be three daily trips, with no service on statutory holidays.

Customers living within the Village boundaries of Ashcroft and Clinton can still arrange for transportation between scheduled runs, by calling the local transit operator. Additionally, the local transit service in Cache Creek and the Regional District will come to an end on April 1. As a result, after the service changes there will be two bus stops; one in Clinton and the other in Ashcroft.

There are no changes to the existing Health Connections service in Ashcroft, Cache Creek and Clinton which will continue to serve these communities as it currently does on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The changes to the local transit service were necessary due to the recent decision by the Village of Cache Creek to discontinue as a funding partner in the local transit services effective March 31. Facing increased costs, the remaining local government funding partners (the Villages of Ashcroft and Clinton) have worked in partnership with BC Transit to develop a service plan which provides them with an affordable service that supports long term financial sustainability while still meeting the needs of their communities.

For more information, please phone 250.256.7706 or 1.866.434.5577 or consult www.bctransit.com  or Ashcroft & Area Transit System.
