Re: Transit Cancellations

There have been disruptions/cancellations of local transit recently.  I have been in contact with Village of Pemberton (VoP) whom administers the local transit service and are partnered with BC Transit both whom cost shares for the service with Squamish-Lillooet Regional District and Líl̓wat Nation.  The VoP CAO shared the following message and are working on a sustainable solution:

“We have been experiencing some mechanical and staffing issues on the Pemberton Local service.  Unfortunately, due to it being the peak season in Whistler, there is no ability to backstop Pemberton which has resulted in cancellations.  We are working with BC Transit and the local operator to develop a both a short and long solution to ensure the service is reliable and available.”

For those seeking information around these services please refer to the BC Transit website to see schedules, sign up for notifications and to contact BC Transit:
