BC Transit operates in over 130 communities across BC

Matthew Boyd is the Acting Director of Corporate and Strategic Planning at BC Transit. He’s worked at BC Transit for six years and previously worked at Coast Mountain Bus Company. He’s a regular transit rider and never misses an opportunity to sit on the top deck of Victoria’s Double-Decker buses. Find him on Twitter: @mtthwbyd
