Students rely on Ladysmith bus

Duncan – I am responding to the Paul Williams letter regarding BC transit in Ladysmith. For a VIU student like myself who buses and bikes everywhere, I rely on the Ladysmith bus to get me close to Nanaimo where I then bike the rest of the way to VIU.

If BC transit linked to Nanaimo’s transit system, or better yet adopted a bus that went from Duncan to Nanaimo, like the commuter to Victoria, I am sure either way ridership would increase, not just by students, but those who work in Nanaimo too.
