Public bus Swartz Bay to downtown

Know all about PCL. Looking for public bus option. Victoria transit page isn't helping me. Is there an express bus from the ferry to Inner Harbour area? Am doing a walk on from Pender Island to Swartz Bay .no luggage. No need to get to Butcharts. Want to get to downtown.travelling tomorrow. Thanks for help

Looks like the number 70 bus and it takes an hour. I've done this once (a long time ago) and I do recall it was a long and winding trip through the suburbs.

It's called an express, but I don't remember it being very fast when I last used it!

Well the public bus, express or otherwise, does need to make stops along the way whereas the PCL does not.

Thanks. We made the ferry with the car..our guests didn't need the walk on/ bus backup option. Appreciate the help
