Travel Training Is For Everyone

Everyone knows someone who needs BCRTA… but have you ever been interested in riding yourself?

We understand that riding a bus for the first time can be daunting – reading a schedule, finding your way home, or even figuring out how to purchase and use your fare.  That is why our Mobility Manager created a Travel Training Program to teach how to:

Plan, navigate, and successfully ride BCRTA fixed route, paratransit, and BGo curb-to-curb options
