Northern Health Connections modified holiday schedule

The Northern Health Connections program will run on a modified schedule starting December 19, leading up to a holiday season break.

NH Connections provides transportation for clients travelling to non-emergent health services outside their home communities. A variety of routes connect communities across northern B.C., along with service to Vancouver. Demand for the service typically drops over the holiday season as fewer people book health care appointments.

Starting December 19, NH Connections buses will begin their last routes for 2017. Regular routes will resume the week of January 2, 2018.
