Shoppers can hop aboard the holiday bus for free
Holiday shoppers in the valley are being presented with the nice gift of a transportation alternative.
The Cowichan Valley Regional District and B.C. Transit are offering free local transit service, including HandyDART, to all riders Dec. 14 through 16.
The free service is available on all routes in the Cowichan Valley Regional Transit system. The Cowichan Valley commuter to Victoria is excluded.
The Shopper's Special is intended to get valley residents in the holiday spirit and benefit local business while reducing traffic congestion during one of the busiest times of the year. It's expected to be pandemonium for parking at popular shopping spots so close to Christmas.
B.C. Transit and the CVRD hope people will take advantage of the free service and encourage everyone to have a safe and environmentally green holiday season.
