Inter-City Bus Applications

Commercial inter-city buses (ICBs) in British Columbia are subject to the licensing requirements of the Passenger Transportation Act. Decisions on applications to start, change, and reduce ICB services are made by the Passenger Transportation Board. Click here for information about how ICB applications are processed.

ICB Applications

This page lists applications from ICB operators that apply to reduce or eliminate a route. Click the application number to learn more about an application. Click here for more information about making submissions or the ICB application process.
