Transit Service Notice

March 21, 2023

The FVRD has been advised by BC Transit that service suspension will remain in place until further notice, and will impact customers in the communities of Abbotsford, Agassiz-Harrison, Chilliwack, Hope, Mission, and customers using the Fraser Valley Express.  HandyDART service for customers requiring transportation to renal dialysis, cancer treatment and multiple sclerosis appointments in Abbotsford and Mission has been deemed essential and will continue to operate during this service disruption.  All other pre-booked trips will be notified of cancellation.

As BC Transit, and local government partners in the Fraser Valley region are not the employers, they must respect the collective bargaining process and therefore not interfere with, or influence in any way, the negotiation being conducted between employees and their private-sector employer – First Transit. We understand the frustration felt by customers and that the job action is difficult for everyone involved in the region.
