Highway of Tears gets 2 new bus routes

More than a decade after First Nations along northern B.C.'s so-called Highway of Tears began pleading for reliable public transportation, two new bus routes have started regular service along Highway 16.

The first of the new B.C. Transit buses set off from Burns Lake early Monday morning, bound for Smithers along a stretch of road notorious for the high numbers of disappearances and murders of Indigenous women in recent decades.
