The Shawnigan Lake 99 commuter bus will continue with one round trip each day of the week. The bus will leave Cobble Hill Station at 6:45 a.m. and begin the return trip from Government and Superior at 4:40 p.m.
“All other scheduled travel times for these routes have been canceled, and the above travel times will remain in place until further notice,” said the press release issued by BC Transit spokesperson Lenore. Kennedy. “Customers may experience delays and longer travel times than expected, due to the nature of travel and construction underway on the Malahat. “
