The City of Enderby’s hope to increase transit to Salmon Arm had Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors liking the idea but wondering who would be putting up the cash to keep the busses running. The enhanced service would also apply to the Deep Creek area; however, the area director, Rene Talbot said he did not think BC Transit would fund it.

“At the end of the day, I think they will say there is not enough ridership to support it.”

Chad Eliason, who represents the City of Salmon Arm, says additional transit services are desirable for many areas, but “I don’t think they like the price tag that comes along with it.”

The City of Salmon Arm will likely investigate the costs and report back.
