B.C. transit communications manager Johnathan Dyck said reducing the number of trips will help to match ridership numbers with service demand on the bus route.

No changes will be made to pick up and drop off locations along the bus route.

It’s anticipated the bus route will resume its 10 daily trips again in the fall.
