Free Transit offered in Nov. 11 salute

In a gesture of respect and thanks, the CVRD and B.C. Transit will offer free transit service on Remembrance Day.

Veterans and members of the Canadian Forces, meanwhile, receive free transit service all this week if in military uniform, or by showing Army, Navy or Air Force association cards.

And if safe to do so, bus operators will also stop their vehicles at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 to observe the traditional minute of silence.

The free service will also be provided on handyDART within the Cowichan Valley, but will not extend to the Cowichan Valley Commuter to Victoria. For more, visit www.bctransit.com.
