UVic transit hub expansion open house

The University of Victoria hosts an open house tomorrow (Nov. 7) on the proposed expansion of its bus exchange.

The University of Victoria hosts an open house tomorrow (Nov. 7) on the proposed expansion of its bus exchange.

Up for discussion is the proposal to convert parking lot 14 – the lot to the north of the Student Union Building – into an expanded exchange with 10 new bus bays.

The existing space at UVic currently can serve 14 buses at one time.

UVic is one of the busiest B.C. Transit destinations in the Capital Region, with upwards of 50 buses on campus per hour at peak times.

UVic hopes the expansion to be complete by the start of the 2014-15 school year. Once public consultation is complete, the plan will still need to go before Saanich council for approval.

The open house runs from 3 to 6 p.m. in the Michele Pujol Room in the UVic SUB. Representatives from campus planning, facilities management and B.C. Transit will be in attendance to provide information.
