71 Agassiz–Harrison is a route operated by Agassiz–Harrison Transit System. It connects the communities of Harrison Hot Springs and Agassiz to Chilliwack. [1]

Route Description

The route begins at the Downtown Exchange in Chilliwack, travelling east along Yale Road to Highway 9, then north to Agassiz. Buses then continue north along Highway 9 to the Harrison Hot Springs Hotel.

Some trips during the midday period may divert on request to Bridal Falls. As well, one daily trip in each direction operates an "On-Demand" service, allowing detours from the regular route to pick up and drop off passengers closer to their destination.

During the summer, four round trips operate between Chilliwack and Harrison on Sundays. There is no service on Sundays for the rest of the year.

On weekdays and Saturdays, one trip in the morning and one trip in the afternoon departing from Chilliwack travel to Agassiz only before continuing as route 72 Hope. Likewise, the last morning and afternoon trips on route 72 continue as route 71 from Agassiz back to Chilliwack.
