Klahoose Community Bus Resumes Service.

The Klahoose Community Bus resumes service today. As of 6 AM this morning, there was still room for one more passenger.

The June 4, 2020 Run

“Due to physical distancing guidelines, a maximum of five passengers per trip will be allowed in the van. Passengers will be expected to provide their own masks and to wear them while in the van. Hand sanitizer will be available for use when getting on and out of the van, and high-touch surfaces will be cleaned throughout the day,” says Ian Ross, the driver.

“The van will leave the Klahoose Band Office at 8:40 a.m. and drive to Manson’s Hall via the Cortes Bay Road. We will leave Manson’s Hall at 9:10 a.m. to catch the 9:50 a.m. Whaletown ferry, returning to Cortes at 5:50 p.m.”

Resumption of Service

This is the Klahoose Community bus’ first trip since Tuesday, March 17, when service was discontinued in compliance with the “stay at home” advisory issued by government and health authorities. Trips to and from Campbell River will now be on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

“We ask, should you feel unwell on the morning of your trip, that you stay at home and, if possible, cancel by email, text, or phone,” says Ross.

“Thanks for your patience and understanding or, as the Klahoose people say, Emote.”
