PG is celebrating 40 years with BC Transit, putting community members behind the wheel of a 35-foot bus.

The ‘Roadeo’ challenge navigates an obstacle course, allowing people to understand the tasks of an everyday operator.

“Making sure you have 360-degree awareness is the biggest thing for our drivers because you don’t realize how many people are on the road. There’s potential for incident, and you have to always be on your toes.”

– PG Transit Ops Manager David Wilson

Nearly 2 million people utilize PG’s transit service every year with 16 routes in and around the City.
