Details about the free summer Saturday bus service have been hammered out, reports District of Clearwater director of Finance Sheila Thiessen.

The extra service will be offered from July 7 to Aug. 25 and will be free of charge.

At 10:30 a.m. on Saturdays the bus will leave the Vavenby Store. It will go through Clearwater to Blackpool Hall, arriving at the hall at 11:20 a.m. It will then go back into Clearwater.

At 3:30 pm it will leave Brookfield Mall for Vavenby, return to Brookfield Mall and then leave for Blackpool at 4:55 p.m.

The District is producing a brochure and will post all the detailed times and stops on its website as well.

 

The free Saturday bus service will be a summertime-only addition to the regular pay-fare weekly bus service. Both services are open to all members of the public.
