BC Transit is working to provide a longer-term projection for plans and budgets. This includes working with their partners to develop a three-year plan.
This is expected to allow all partners to be better prepared, as longer-term or larger changes are anticipated. This also makes it less likely that any of the partners will be surprised by a sudden increase or decrease in budgets.
Longer term planning is also important because it takes up to two years to get a new bus on the road.
BC Transit will be working with local governments to set transit service standards. These standards will help guide the development of transit and influence decisions around where transit should be to meet individual community needs.
