Nanaimo Regional Transit System provides both conventional bus service and special needs paratransit services within the Regional District of Nanaimo in British Columbia, Canada. The system, operated by the Regional Transportation Services Department, is jointly funded by BC Transit, the provincial agency responsible for transit services outside of Metro Vancouver.



There are 19 scheduled bus routes in the region.[1] The transit system operates seven days a week, with reduced service on weekends and holidays. All accessible buses are also equipped with bike racks. In rural areas the buses can be flagged down, as there are no designated bus stops. Passengers who are worried about their personal safety at night can ask the driver to drop them off between regular bus stops.[2]
