Update: Slocan River Road Detour – April 4, 2017

At this point the Ministry of Transportation is not sure when the road will be reopened for buses. The run-off from the winters snows are problematic.
As soon as we have an update from them we will inform all of you and go back to our regular bus schedules.

Thank you for your continued support,
