UFV shuttle bus ready to roll into Langley

Up to six round trips per day planned to carry students from downtown Langley to Abbotsford university campus

  • Nov. 19, 2014 11:00 a.m.

Langley students attending the University of the Fraser Valley will soon have a new, greener way to get to school.

The UFV student body ha endorsed two expansion proposals for the UFV Campus Connector shuttle bus program.

Starting in January 2015, an additional bus will run between Abbotsford and Chilliwack and a brand new connection between downtown Langley and Abbotsford will be added, with up to six round trips daily from 6 a.m. to 6:45 p.m.

The shuttle bus is run by the UFV Student Union Society (SUS) and UFV.

The Fraser Valley Express bus (FVX), a public transit link from Chilliwack to Langley, is scheduled to launch in spring/summer 2015. UFV plans to connect to the new express route once they know the schedule.
