Due to Covid 19 restrictions the Youth Van is not currently operational. This page will be updated when the service resumes.

Columbia Basin Trust committed $100,000 to our community over a four-year period, specifically to enhance local opportunities and services targeted at youth. In 2014 the Slocan Valley Youth Network asked youth ages 12-19 yrs how they would spend a grant to enhance their experience growing up in the Slocan Valley. They wanted to improve access to transportation and they wanted to buy a bus. A 15 passenger van was purchased providing Slocan Valley Youth with free, reliable, and safe transportation up and down the Slocan Valley.

The van runs Fridays and Saturdays from 5:00 pm- 12:00 am to and from the Slocan Valley Youth Centre. See our schedule for times.
** This is free transportation for Slocan Valley Youth, however,  all youth MUST sign the user agreement(can be picked up on first ride).
