Hornby Bus

This is an initiative of Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Society in partnership with the Hornby Island Community Economic Enhancement Corporation (HICEEC) that offered a free summer bus service around the island in August.

2019 update

After the After the successful first season, Community enthusiasm was running high to carry on with the bus service. But with no funding the bus was parked at the end of the 2017 summer. However, the 2017 successful pilot project drew the attention of the Comox Valley Regional District, who are responsible for public transportation service in the area. In a forward-thinking manner, the CVRD stepped up with a commitment to undertake their own summer of 2018 pilot project to review the viability and logistics of the service. The Hornby community sponsors, and local governments, collaborated to bring service back for the full summer of 2018. 


The bus is able to run because of financial support from these sponsors:
