Public transit

As part of the Central Okanagan Transit Future Action Plan, BC Transit, in collaboration with the local partners, will be hosting several public engagement events in March 2017. These events will present some of the proposed transit service changes in the region to the public for their feedback and comment. The events will also be an opportunity to discuss the role of public transit in the Central Okanagan and how the decision-making process works. For the engagement dates and times, and more information, visit https://bctransit.com/kelowna/transit-future.
