Service has taken over all Vancouver Island bus routes north of Nanaimo and expanded service

Tofino Bus Service has taken over all Vancouver Island bus routes north of Nanaimo and expanded service on established routes between Campbell River and Victoria.

“With its new “All-Island Express” service, Tofino Bus now offers the largest scheduled bus service on Vancouver Island,” said president Dylan Green in a recent release.

“Cowichan Valley passengers will benefit from more frequent service – three times daily – from Duncan to Campbell River, Victoria, Vancouver and all points in between – allowing for earlier morning and later evening departures.”

Tofino Bus made its move when the former provider applied to give up routes north of Nanaimo.

“We saw a great opportunity to not only keep that service going, but also expand it in communities along those routes,” Green said.

Tofino, an interline partner with Greyhound, uses all the same stations and accepts Greyhound tickets and freight. Its buses coordinate with Greyhound’s Victoria and Vancouver connections.

“Other than passengers getting used to the new name and the more frequent buses between Campbell River and Victoria/Vancouver, it’s going to be a seamless transition,” Green said.

In addition to the more frequent South Island service, Tofino Bus now provides daily service to Port Hardy and continues its “namesake daily express service” between Victoria, Port Alberni, Ucluelet and Tofino two to three times daily.
