“As a result, it may become increasingly difficult to separate the PVTS from the corresponding expansion of Whistler Transit’s overhead costs while at the same time attempting to expand and enhance the Pemberton service.”

The report says the current transit system has fallen short of ridership targets by 28.2 per cent, which led to a shortfall of almost $25,000.

The report also states that the timing is ideal to make a change to the transit system — there is an opportunity to get grants and the five-year contract with Whistler Transit comes to an end in the spring.
