Patients travelling to Prince George from Valemount or McBride on the Northern Health Connections bus service, will now have an onboard washroom and bigger luggage space.
Northern Health Connections Bus service unveiled the newest member of its fleet that will travel on the Prince George to Valemount/McBride route. The new bus is part of a routine fleet refresh by the operator of the service, Diversified Transportation.
