BC Transit is one of the most robust and complex public transportation services in British Columbia. Serving every part of BC except the lower mainland, this provincial crown corporation oversees a fleet of 1,200-plus vehicles in 83 transit systems, serving 51 million riders annually. More than 130 communities depend on BC Transit to meet their unique transportation needs.
