Monthly and Semester Transit Pass Sales Resume

Notice to Public

BC Transit has increased the number of passengers allowed on their buses so we will be resuming Monthly and Semester pass sales beginning Wednesday, July 8th. Pass sales were temporarily suspended due to limited capacity on the buses as a result of COVID-19. Nelson Transit may have to turn away passengers if the bus is full, but the increased limits will reduce the likelihood of this happening.

To help us create the appropriate “social distance” space on the bus with these new limits, we are asking passengers to try to find a vacant spot on the bus (whether it be seated or standing) that will give themselves and the passengers around them the most room possible. Wearing a face mask is also recommended and will add another layer of safety for everyone.

The new transit capacity limits are as follows:

Bus Type

Old Passenger Limit

New Passenger Limit

Nova Bus



Vicinity Bus



International Bus



Arboc Bus




Note: The International and Arboc buses (with the smallest passenger limits) are listed as “Community Buses” in the Riders Guide and the individual runs they do are identified with the letter “B”. Please keep this in mind when planning your trip.
