With New Year's Day falling on a Sunday, there really wasn't much for the schedule makes to do this year at Prince Rupert/Port Edward Transit, as the service doesn't provide service on a Sunday through the year.
However for those looking to ring in the New Year the night before, getting to your destination may work out on public transit, but you'll be on your own when the clock strikes midnight.
All of the BC Transit routes in both Prince Rupert and Port Edward will operate on the regular Saturday service, which means the last bus into the downtown area arrived es at 6:39 PM.
There is no late night Service in place this year for the change from 2022 to 2023.
Those using transit have also discovered some route changes in the last week or so as BC Transit tries to manoeuvre around the ongoing road reconstruction owing to broken water lines.
Impacted over the last seven to ten days have been the service on Route 52 along Kootenay and Route 53 to the Crestview area.
You can access the Rider Alerts page here, for details on how they are addressing the challenges, as well as for any updates on changes to the affected routes.
