New Transit Exchange Grand Opening

The Victoria Regional Transit Commission (VRTC) along with the Government of British Columbia, BC Transit and the University of Victoria officially opened a 10-bay expansion of the UVic transit exchange on September 4, 2014.  The expanded exchange, on the north side of the Student Union Building, will alleviate bus capacity issues at peak times and support future service expansion.

The cost of the $1.52 million expansion was shared among the VRTC, the Government of British Columbia through BC Transit and the university.  17,000 passengers are served daily at UVic by 1,100 transit trips on 14 routes.  There are now a total of 21 transit bays at the university.
