Feedback sought to expand transit service between Penticton and Summerland

BC Transit plans to add 10 additional trips a week

BC Transit and the municipality of Summerland are asking the public for feedback on additional service for the South Okanagan – Similkameen Transit System.

In early 2022, Route 30 Penticton/Summerland will have 10 additional trips added per week, for a total of 900 hours. Feedback from the public is important to help determine when it’s best to introduce these additional trips for transit users, BC Transit says.
