Gertie is still operating on the regular schedule. We know you depend on Gertie to get to work, to the ferry, or to the village for shopping and other errands. GERTIE drivers are dedicated to serving you.
GERTIE bus service will be discontinued IF BC Transit in Nanaimo is discontinued.
If there is illness on the island, GERTIE may consider discontinuing or reducing service.
Should it become necessary to reduce service, we will post notice here and on Facebook.
In the meantime, we are doing our best to keep all our riders and drivers safe. After every shift, drivers will be disinfecting all commonly touched surfaces such as door handles, grab bars, fare boxes, tops of seats, etc. We will also be continuing our regular cleaning and sanitizing.
You can help too. Please, do not ride the bus if you are feeling unwell from any cause. Wash your hands regularly. Spread yourselves out as much as possible on the bus.
Gertie thanks you. Be well!
