Explore Victoria

Catch a movie, meander through Butchart Gardens, swirl down a waterslide or watch the sun set at an ocean-side park. All this and more is as easy as hopping a bus.

Let us do the driving while you enjoy the ride without the hassles of traffic, parking or negotiating maps and unfamiliar streets.

Fare payment is easy: you can purchase a DayPass or ten tickets, or you can pay the cash fare each trip.

The most convenient option is the DayPass, which is the way to go if you plan to ride several times per day. With a DayPass, you can hop on and off the bus as often as you'd like. If you are travelling with your children, they can ride for FREE when you use your DayPass. (Up to four children, age 12 and younger).

Descriptions of up to 100 of Greater Victoria's most popular attractions, bus schedules, fare information and route maps are just a click away.
