The Sea to Sky Transit Future Plan was completed in 2015. It was a 25-year strategic plan developed by BC Transit in Collaboration with multiple local partners within the Sea to Sky Region, including the Village of Pemberton. Pemberton had a goal to provide midday or evening Regional Transit service between Whistler and Pemberton. Now that the service is provided, Pemberton residents have shown interest in more evening service. In September of 2018, Pemberton approved 800 hours of transit service expansion to provide an additional evening trip.
To determine what time would be most useful to residents and customers of the Route 99 Pemberton Commuter, BC Transit proceeded with conducting an online survey inquiring how customers currently use transit and what they see would be best for them in new service. The online survey was conducted between January 29th to February 12th 2019.
