Getting ready for the season opening on June 30/22
a.k.a. Rub 'n' Scrub
4 runs a day to Whaling Station, Helliwell Park, and Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Centre have been added. There is a bit of a walk from the bus stop if your destination is Helliwell Park, so be prepared to enjoy the extra hike.
This year the mid-day gap has been dramatically shortened. One of the focuses is to serve the Farmers' Market for their full hours of operation. Parking is an issue, hop on the bus and leave your car at home!
Twelve hours/day you can catch the bus. It's going to operate a little later, so you can go out for dinner and still ride the bus home. Moving people, not cars is our motto.
Friday, Saturday, Sunday and holiday Mondays there is also a bus across Denman, in shuttle mode to try to match the ferries.
Jon Laskin, from Hornby Island Bakery & Pizzeria, will randomly come onto the bus once/week and award a large pizza to some lucky rider.
If you like playing cards, you'll love this cross promotion.
There is a cookie "shoe" on the bus.
When you get onto the bus, take a card.
It will be redeemable for a free cookie at Hornby Island Bakery & Pizzeria. If you're lucky and get a JOKER - it's your choice of sweet treat.
