The company has filed an application, proposing that its current daily minimum of three buses be reduced to two, and its weekly service be reduced from 42 buses to 28 for Williams Lake.

Mayor Kerry Cook brought the information to council Tuesday evening, saying the public has until Oct. 17 to respond and voice any concerns.

“It’s a significant change that was brought to my attention in a letter we received Friday,” Cook said.

Anyone with concerns is asked to contact the B.C. Passenger Transportation Board, Box 9850 Stn. Prov. Govt., Victoria, BC, V8W9T5, ptboard@gov.bc.ca, by quoting Application #305-12/Routes EI,E2(b).
