Rutland Transit Improvements
Rutland Transit Improvements Phase One is a $4.5 million investment in Rutland which includes new bus pull-outs on Highway 33, Dougall Road pedestrian improvements and an extension of Shepherd Road to accommodate enhanced transit service to the Rutland area.
Residents in Rutland can look forward to a great new public space featuring wide and creatively designed sidewalks, seating areas and decorative lighting for comfort and safety. The northern edge of Shepherd Road will feature a contemporary and interactive art wall celebrating Rutland's culture and heritage.
Construction on the Dougall Road pedestrian improvements and Shepherd Road extension will be complete in June 2013. During this phase of construction crews will complete the Shepherd Road transit facilities and streetscape as well as pedestrian improvements on Dougall Road. This phase of work will impact Dougall Road, Shepherd Road and Asher Road. Please see the area construction map and traffic advisory for details.
In June, construction will begin on Highway 33. Three new bus pull-outs will be constructed between Hollywood Road and Dougall Road.

The Rutland transit improvements are part of BC Transit’s RapidBus Phase Two and Three Project, which includes creating and upgrading transit facilities throughout the region.
The Rutland transit improvements will form a part of the Frequent Transit Network and will provide commuters with direct access to the second phase of the Kelowna RapidBus project once both phases are completed.
RapidBus connects people to their destinations easier and faster, and builds a sustainable, efficient transportation network within the region.
