Okanagan College Transit Exchange & KLO Road Improvements

As part of BC Transit's RapidBus Phase 2 and 3 project, a new Transit Exchange has been built on KLO Road. 

The new exchange, fronting Okanagan College on KLO Road, was developed based on consultation with the community through three open houses, and various traffic studies. The transit and roadway improvements increase the functionality and comfort of the current transit amenities, while providing a traffic calmed environment intended to reduce vehicle speeds.

The new exchange went into service in September 2014.
