Expect rolling street closures, bus delays as truck convoy moves through region Saturday

The annual Island Equipment Owners Association Truck Light Convoy is set to take place Saturday evening and BC Transit is warning of bus delays as the trucks make their way through the region.

A customer advisory on the BC Transit website says all bus routes may be affected and that customers should expect some delays.

“There will be rolling street closures with police escort throughout the Capital Region – Victoria, Oak Bay, Saanich and the West Shore,” the advisory says.

Food donations will be collected as the convoy rolls through Greater Victoria. A list of food donation locations can be found here.
