Gabriola Community Bus Service (Gertie)

GERTIE (Gabriola’s Environmentally Responsible Trans-Island Express)

GERTIE – Gabriola’s Community bus, started operation in June 2013. Within 6 months we had carried over 5000 passengers, and were averaging 6 to 7 passengers per hour of operation and 200 to 300 passengers every week.  GERTIE serves almost all parts of Gabriola Island with commuter runs every weekday morning and afternoon and mid-day runs every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  We also provide transportation for community events such as concerts, festivals, community meetings, the Salmon Barbeque, the GVFD Fireworks and many others.  GERTIE relies almost entirely on volunteer drivers and a volunteer management committee.  If you are interested in driving or helping out, please contact the GERTIE bus crew.  For more information on how you can get involved, or to learn about routes and schedule, or to contact us see: http://gertie.ca
