A new transit plan to connect the communities of the South Okanagan and Similkameen is starting to take shape and feedback is wanted.
The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen and local municipalities will be working together with BC Transit to build the new transit future action plan, to replace the previous plan from 2015.
Feedback can be delivered through open houses being held in the South Okanagan and Similkameen or online.
The sessions will be held on Nov. 24 in Oliver, Osoyoos and Penticton, and on Nov. 25 in Penticton, Okanagan Falls and Summerland.
Due to the recent flooding, feedback from Princeton residents will be limited to online only, which can be provided through engage.bctransit.com/southokanagan2021 until December 14, 2021.
The feedback will help shape the priorities and future projects for transit in the region.
The open house sessions will maintain COVID-19 safety protocols and masks will be required.
In Oliver, the session will take place at the MultiCultural Club on 735 McKinney Road from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
In Osoyoos, it will be held at the Sonora Community Centre 8505 68 Ave from 2:30 to 4 p.m.
In Okanagan Falls at the Okanagan Falls Recreation Centre 1141 Cedar St. from 9 to 10:30 a.m.
In Summerland at the Summerland Arts Centre on 9525 Wharton St. from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m.
