About Us

In a Nutshell
Gabriola's Environmentally Responsible Trans-Island Express
Our Organization

The purpose of the Gabriola Community Bus Foundation is to protect the environment for the benefit of the public by operating a community bus system on Gabriola Island.

In 2008, the major catalyst bringing the community together to consider the feasibility of public transit on Gabriola was a growing concern about climate change with the focus specifically on the impact of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on the planet’s environment. At the provincial and federal government levels, funding was made available to stimulate action intended to reduce GHG emissions. The use of petroleum-based fuels was recognized as an important source of the emissions and public transit considered a potential means of reducing dependence on the automobile as a dominant mode of transport.
