BC Transit has awarded our transit operator, First Transit, with a Transit Superstar award for their efforts during the flooding events in November 2021. It was a shared award with other communities who were also in a state of emergency, and recognized the team for going above and beyond in providing service and also assisting in evacuation efforts. Great job First Transit!
