Increases in density, development and population in the Westshore have shifted our region’s travel patterns and transit demand. As a result, the Westshore is projected to have the highest rate of employment growth within the Capital Regional District!
BC Transit’s response to this growth includes the creation of the new Royal Bay Transit Exchange on Latoria Blvd. located between Dunlin Street and Sparrowhawk Avene. The exchange will be constructed at the same time as the signalized intersection, which began during Spring Break 2022 in order to minimize traffic disruptions.
Royal Bay Transit Exchange Plans and Traffic Improvements
The additional bus stops with pullouts on each side of Latoria Blvd. will provide quick service and easy connections to the Westshore and to regional destinations such as downtown Victoria, Uptown and the University of Victoria. Eastbound service will connect to the Colwood Exchange and westbound service will connect to the Langford Exchange.
New Royal Bay bus route information and timetables will be released by BC Transit come early 2023. For more detailed information, see BC Transit’s Future Plan for the Westshore Transit Network.
