Free Saturday bus returning

Clearwater town council voted May 21 to bring back the free Saturday bus for the summer

Clearwater town council voted May 21 to bring back the free Saturday bus for the summer.

Bike racks on the front make the bus more attractive for many users, Mayor John Harwood noted.

The bus would be timed so it can be used by people going to and coming from the Farmers Market, said councillor Barry Banford.

The free Saturday bus ran last summer on a trial basis.

Bringing it back again was done on a recommendation from the joint services committee, which handles services provided jointly by District of Clearwater and Wells Gray Country (Thompson-Nicola Regional District Area A).
