Pacific Western Transit is the giant Alberta based transportation group which provides industrial transportation and public transit in many communities in Alberta, Ontario and British Columbia.

Earlier this month, they were awarded the contract for Northwest Transit service by BC Transit, with the new company set to serve Prince Rupert, Terrace, Kitimat and the Hazeltons.

The changeover in service from current contract holder First Canada is to be in place by April 1st.

The change in operators also arrives as BC Transit continues to expand on its Highway 16 shuttle program, having recently introduced the service between Hazelton and Terrace.
