Public input sought on regional bus plan

Fraser Valley Express bus will connect Chilliwack, Abbotsford and Langley

A new bus connecting Chilliwack, Abbotsford and Langley will be the subject of a series of open houses held Sept. 9 to 12.

The Fraser Valley Express (FVX) will connect four independent transit systems: Agassiz-Harrison, Chilliwack, Central Fraser Valley and TransLink.

The service is anticipated to start in late spring 2015, and the proposed routes and schedules are based on the results of public input, as well as certain key goals, like ensuring it is a direct, express service and key destinations in each community are easily accessible.

Open houses will be held in Abbotsford on Sept. 9 at the UFV Abbotsford campus Peter Jones Learning Commons from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sept. 10 at the Bourquin transit exchange from 2  to 4 p.m. and Sept. 12 at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

An open house in Mission will be held at the Mission Library and the Mission transit exchange from 10 a.m. to noon.
