West Kootenay Transit on Board with Selkirk College to Boost Adventure by Bus
A new video starring Selkirk College students shows off the benefits of jumping on board West Kootenay Transit. Produced by Digital Arts & New Media Program student James Tucker, the partnership between the college and BC Transit aims to change how the community thinks about transportation.
“Public transit in the West Kootenay region provides an efficient way for residents to get around the region,” said Manuel Achadinha, BC Transit President and CEO. “The students in the video do a terrific job showing all the effective BC Transit options available to riders.”
The video called Boost Adventure by Bus, captures Selkirk College Saints players adventuring by bus, across the diverse and beautiful West Kootenay landscape. Hockey heroes Dallas Calvin, Arie Postmus and Ryan Edwards make stops at Cottonwood Falls in Nelson, the Castlegar & District Recreation Complex and the Historical Brilliant Suspension Bridge. Joining them, guitar in hand, was Selkirk College Contemporary Music & Technology Program students Mordechai Ben Shahar, Sophie Moreau Parent, Amanda Cowley, James Villa and Jan Cho.
The video helps demonstrate how—with BC Transit—you can put down your map, relax, and get lost in the spectacular West Kootenay views.
