Changes are coming this weekend to Kelowna’s regional transit system.

The changes, according to BC Transit, include switching to summer service and improving on-time performance.

The changes, which take effect Sunday, April 5, are also being made to have “sufficient service to allow for physical distancing while traveling on public transit in BC Transit communities.”

The changes include:

  • Service reductions and schedule changes on various routes that reflect summer service
  • Discontinuation of routes 4 Pandosy / UBCO Express and 13 Quail Ridge for the summer
  • Schedule change for route 97 Okanagan and 23 Lake Country to improve on-time performance
  • Due to additional changes in response to COVID-19, a rider’s guide will not be available for this service change.

“The response to COVID-19 is a fluid situation that businesses, governments, and people are adjusting to across the country and around the world,” BC Transit said in a press release.
