Cowichan Valley Regional Transit System

The Cowichan Valley Regional District partners with BC Transit to administer a public transit service within the Cowichan Valley that contributes to reducing the number of motor vehicles travelling on its roads.  Buses currently service the City of Duncan, District of North Cowichan, Town of Lake Cowichan and operate daily to and from downtown Victoria via the Malahat.

Local Transit Service is provided daily with buses that hold 40 people at capacity (not including standees).  This service also offers promotions throughout the year which include having no fees for the Class Rides Free Program, Clean Air Day and a Christmas/local shopping thank you. http://www.bctransit.com/regions/cow/?p=2.txt and www.cvrd.bc.ca provides information and schedules.

Cowichan Valley Commuter Service is provided weekdays (excluding statutory holidays) and targets commuters travelling from downtown Duncan to downtown Victoria and return with many bus stops en route who may, in most cases, be otherwise driving alone.  At capacity buses hold 42 people. For more information click on http://www.bctransit.com/regions/cvc/?p=2.txt.

handyDART Service is provided Monday to Saturday to people who have physical challenges which prohibit them from using the conventional Transit System.  Specially equipped vehicles are designed to carry eighteen passengers, including those with wheelchairs and/or disabilities. Schedules and more information can be found at www.volunteercowichan.bc.ca.
