Bus to Lillooet clinic working

Seven people used the community bus last week to get to doctors' appointments in Lillooet.

The community bus took seven people to see doctors in Lillooet on its maiden trip last Thursday. Dave Durksen said everything went well  and they are hoping for more patents this week.

Patients starting in Ashcroft need to be at the hospital by 10:45 am – the bus leaves Ashcroft at 11am. Patients starting in Cache Creek need to be at the community hall – on the lower level – by 11am and the bus will stop before 11:15 – load and the leave for Lillooet.

For appointments call 250-453-2211 ext. 2 – have your care card number ready, and bring $10 cash for the bus fare – fare will be collected on registration in Lillooet.

The staff at the Lillooet Hospital were excellent, said Durksen. “This has the potential to work for everyone we just need to get the patients to book appointments.”
