New Bus Stop at James White and Resthaven
BC Transit and the Town of Sidney are implementing a service change on April 5, 2021, which will include a new bus stop on James White Boulevard at Resthaven Drive. As a result of feedback from impacted residents, BC Transit and the Town of Sidney have coordinated to find an alternate solution to better suit the community’s needs. The new proposed bus stop on James White Boulevard is being shifted approximately 20 meters to the east (see map below).
This change is being made as a result of capacity issues at the existing bus stop/bus layover located on James White Boulevard at Fifth Street, which results in more buses than can physically fit in the available space several times each day.
This change will impact routes 71 Swartz Bay/Downtown, 72 Swartz Bay/Downtown, and 81 Brentwood/Swartz Bay, which will serve the new bus stop on James White Boulevard at Resthaven Drive (see map below) instead of the existing bus stop on James White Boulevard at Fifth St (ID #102253).
This new stop will be a bus stop for offloading and pickups only, and will not serve as a bus layover location. The existing bus stop on James White Boulevard at Fifth Street will continue to serve as Sidney’s primary bus layover location, as it was designed at the time of development.
Any questions or concerns regarding this change can be directed to the Town of Sidney Engineering Department, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 250-656-4502.
