In September BC Transit will be implementing a new bus route in the Dean Park area. Route 87 will provide service between Saanichton and downtown Sidney traveling in both directions with stops at the airport and the McTavish Park & Ride. Route 87 will provide connections to routes covering the length of the Peninsula.
Locations have been confirmed by the District in consultation with BC Transit staff. The proposed bus stop locations, shown in the supplied map, will improve the neighbourhood's access to public transit allowing more transportation choices for local residents.
Bus stop locations and design ultimately affect the performance of the transit system’s overall goal of providing timely, safe, and convenient transportation. Criteria for selecting bus stop locations include:
- Close proximity to adjacent streets for pedestrian access;
- Physical facilities to promote safety and accessibility;
- Good sight lines. Bus stop should be in visible locations;
- Adequate spacing between subsequent stops.
