Redeem BC Transit pass to swim, skate at Cowichan Valley facilities

BC Transit has partnered with Cowichan Valley Regional District on a new campaign to make customers’ monthly bus pass go farther.

BC Transit has partnered with Cowichan Valley Regional District on a new campaign to create healthier communities, and make customers’ monthly bus pass go farther.

A new Swim or Skate campaign will be offered until Mar. 31, 2017 and entitles users at participating recreation facilities to get one free admission per month when they present the previous month’s Cowichan Valley Transit pass.

“We’re pleased to partner with local governments in the Cowichan Valley to promote active transportation and fitness,” said BC Transit Chief Executive Officer and President Manuel Achadinha.

“Taking advantage of recreational facilities in the Cowichan Valley by using a previous month’s pass shows our commitment to improving the value for customers.”

Transit users can use bus passes purchased from September 2016 to March 2017 as part of the program.

Participating locations include: Cowichan Aquatic Centre, Cowichan Lake Sports Arena, Frank Jameson Community Centre, Fuller Lake Arena, Island Savings Centre and Kerry Park Recreation Centre.

“Buying monthly transit passes is already a great option to save money, and now it provides an opportunity to stay active,” said Cowichan Valley Regional District Chair Jon Lefebure.

“It also reinforces the Hop on Board and Play Cowichan campaign that recreation and transit have partnered on across our region.”
