Salt Spring Island Public Transit Service

Salt Spring Island Transit System commenced bus service on Salt Spring Island on January 7 2008. It is a partnership between BC Transit, the CRD, and the local operating company, Ganges Faerie Minishuttle Ltd. with routes that include regular visits to Vesuvius, Fernwood, Fulford Harbour and Long Harbour with all routes leading to Ganges, as a route from Fulford to Ruckle Park, and one to Fernwood.

While there have been several attempts to establish a public bus service on Salt Spring Island in the past, all eventually failed. With the backing of the CRD and BC Transit, all signs are that this service will be permanent and ongoing.

A map of bus routes and schedules is available on the BC Transit website. Pay attention to "Holiday Service" as the buses do not run on Christmas Day or New Year's Day. On most other holidays, the Sunday schedule is used.
