Northern Health Connections Bus Service to go on summer hiatus
When it comes to the Bus transportation system for Northern Health, for the next few weeks at least, the wheels on the bus won't be going round and round.
Northern Health has outlined its summer break schedule, a stoppage of service which will see the Northern Connections bus system in Park for the next three weeks or so.
Of note to residents of the North Coast is the Prince George to Prince Rupert run, which will stop operating as of August 9th.
The service is to resume on August 24th, when the Prince George to Prince Rupert route returns to service.
For those that make use of the Burns Lake to Terrace service, it will come to a stop at the end of business on Thursday, set to resume on Thursday, August 28th.
The full review of all the route suspensions can be found here.
The planned stoppage for much of August provides opportunity for maintenance issues on the bus fleet, as well as for vacation time for those that drive the buses to the wide range of communities across the Northern Health service region.
While the buses may not be in operation in August, the call centre will remain open for those that may wish to inquire further as to the service and to book a seat on the next available bus.
