Effective September 2, 2012
On September 2, 2012 transit service began in Quail Ridge. The City of Kelowna and BC Transit responded to requests from students and other transit riders to link the popular neighbourhood with the university. The #13 Quail Ridge bus is neighbourhood friendly sized and runs every 30 minutes between 7 am and 10:30 am and again from 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm. This route is a pilot, that will run for the 2012/13 school year.
