Online transit trip planner expanded

Taking the bus in Mission and Abbotsford has become easier, if you have a computer.

Taking the bus in the District of Mission and City of Abbotsford just got easier for anyone with access to a computer, tablet or smartphone thanks to the expansion of an online transit trip-planning tool.

The Transit Trip Planner is a public transportation planning tool that combines the latest BC Transit schedule and route information with the power of Google Transit and maps. It is a free service that makes trip planning quick and easy for everyone.

The timing of the trip planner comes as the new Route #66 Fraser Valley Express (FVX) has recently begun its inter-regional service, linking Chilliwack and Abbotsford to Langley.

In the Central Fraser Valley, BC Transit provided nearly 2.4 million passenger trips in 2013/14. The introduction of both the FVX and the Transit Trip Planner will encourage ridership growth, by demonstrating that public transportation is a convenient and reliable alternative to single occupancy vehicles.

“This is a free service that makes trip planning quick and easy, combining the latest BC Transit schedule and route information with Google, and I encourage everyone to check out how simple it is to use,” said Abbotsford-Mission MLA Simon Gibson.

“This is a really good thing. It’s great for all our local and regional citizens to have access to this trip planner right at their fingertips, said Mission Coun. Pam Alexis. “Transit is key to the future of transportation across our community and the region, and we’re really happy to see this service launched.”
