The Regional Services Department coordinates the City’s roles and responsibilities in the Regional District of the Central Okanagan and facilitates valley-wide initiatives such as regional transit service and regional environmental initiatives.
Services are provided by two branches:
- Regional Programs
- Regional Project Management
smartTRIPS is the Central Okanagan’s new active transportation education program. The goal is to encourage all Central Okanagan residents to be healthy and active by reducing drive-alone trips. By biking, walking, riding transit, carpooling and other smart transportation options we benefit the community through better health, cleaner air and a healthier environment. Together we can improve the quality of life for everyone in the Central Okanagan.
Air Quality Program
The City of Kelowna is contracted to provide an Air Quality program. This program is a joint initiative between the Regional District of the Central Okanagan (RDCO), the City of Kelowna, the District of Peachland, District of West Kelowna, and the District of Lake Country. The Air Quality program is designed to increase awareness, educate the public and protect and improve the quality of the air we share in the Central Okanagan.
Regional Project Management
This branch provides support for operation, planning and project delivery of Kelowna Regional Transit services and works with other Okanagan communities to expand the regional transit service. The Branch also works with Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure on joint highway projects.
