Mount Waddington Transit Start-up

Port Hardy, BC, July 2, 2008 – Residents and guests of the Mount Waddington Regional District joined BC Transit and other partners to celebrate the launches of Mount Waddington Transit in Port Hardy and Port McNeill today.

Six routes are now in service:

#1 Port Hardy/Port McNeill – provides service between the communities

#11 Port Hardy – serves Port Hardy, hospital, Tsulquate

#12 Port McNeill – serves Port McNeill, hospital and Hyde Creek

#4 Fort Rupert/Storey’s Beach – serves Fort Rupert Storey’s Beach and Curling Club

#5 Coal Harbour – serves Coal Harbour, and Quatsino

#6 Woss – serves Port NcNeill, Hyde Creek, Zeballos Junction and Woss

Two new Polar III buses will be used for the service. The buses were purchased with provincial funding provided by the Public Transit Infrastructure Program (PTIP). The PTIP delivers $52.5 million to BC communities and is administered by the Union of British Columbia Municipalities.

No clue... since they said "new" I would imagine they meant the GMC/ElDorado National Aero Elites.

Somebody should add that to the Wiki.

I'm working on a system-wide update to the Wiki based on a recent fleet list and my recent visit to multiple BC Transit properties.

As for Mount Waddington, my fleet list shows three buses: 2097, 2107, and 2202. Nothing conventional based out of there.

*bump*

BC Transit is currently consulting on extending Mount Waddington route 4 out to the Port Hardy Airport.

And for the record, Mount Waddington had their fleet swapped out for three new 2018 Arbocs (2681, 2683, 2687) at the end of last year. The long distance routes operated by the system probably necessitates more frequent bus purchases.
