Make a donation

Because of this widespread disaster, we’re partnering with NEXTEXT by providing donation opportunities for anyone who texts BCFIRES to 30333. Your $10 donation will be added onto your phone bill and help those affected by the fires.  You can also make a financial donation to the Canadian Red Cross.

We’re helping to support those affected by the fires by providing our unsold ad space in Next Bus text messages to advertise the $10 SMS text donation for the Canadian Red Cross. When you text Next Bus SMS (33333) with your bus stop ID number, you’ll receive a text message with the next few bus departure times in addition to the ad at right.

Please help us support those in distress by donating today.
