Volunteer Drivers move a 40' reconfigured bus ( the ORCA Bus) to scheduled stops/visits to all areas of the Regional District of Powell River. The ORCA Bus parks for the duration of the program and is then returned to the storage yard. Typically, Volunteer Drivers spend 3 to 4 hours on each trip. There are opportunities for drop off and/or pick up options that require less of a time commitment.
The ORCA bus has been on the road since February 2009. Today, the bus delivers a Strong Start outreach program for SD#47, The City of Powell River, Supported Child Development (inclusion Powell River), Tla,amin Health, and a plethora of other activities at various community events in Powell River. The bus offers programmed stops and 'pop - ups' from Saltery Bay to Lund and Texada Island.
