Powell River Regional Transit System Fare Survey

BC Transit is currently working to provide advice and recommendations to the City of Powell River and qathet Regional District on fares. BC Transit aims to conduct fare reviews in each of its systems every three to five years. There are typically three main funding sources for transit: (1) provincial contributions, (2) property taxes (local), (3) fare revenues (local).
