New Sooke Park N' Ride
Check out the article from the Sooke Mirror. I also had a good meeting with Manuel Achadinha this past Friday. There seem to be some technical challenges for getting a 3-Bike rack on the buses, but they are open to ideas and looking for alternatives. We also hope to get approval to allow folding bikes onboard the buses. The other big plan is to start a pilot project of allowing regular bikes onboard buses on certain runs. It would start out to be weekend runs between Victoria and Sooke, and possibly Sidney and the Ferry Terminal, this summer. That would allow larger groups and families to come to Sooke with their bikes to pedal the Goos, explore the Potholes and town area as well as Mountain Bikers to come ride in the hills! It would also allow folks from Sooke to take their bikes downtown for a day in the big city!
