KAMLOOPS — Transportation Minister Todd Stone has announced an expedited permitting system for the province's trucking industry.

The online-based system is called 'onRouteBC,' and is touted to reduce wait times for trucking companies.

Stone says the current permit application system results in wait times before truckers can receive their permits, but in the new system, truckers will often be issued their permits immediately.

onRouteBC will be available by October 3.
