Free Downtown Shuttle Bus

This 30-day trial project will and allow residents and visitors the opportunity of enjoying the convenience of hop-on, hop-off service to many exciting destinations within the downtown, including LoJo, Chinatown, the Design District, and Bastion Square.  The shuttle stops on Government Street, both at Humboldt (near Sam’s Deli and Spirit of Victoria) and at Pandora (opposite Mountain Equipment Co-op); Store Street at Chatham (by Capital Iron and Ocean River); and at Wharf Street, south of Yates (in front of Regent Hotel).  The complete loop route takes fifteen minutes in the comfortable thirty-eight passenger vehicle. Its interior and exterior compliment the charm of Downtown Victoria.
