    The South Okanagan-Similkameen Transit Future Plan was completed and approved in 2015, and identified the vision for transit within the South Okanagan-Similkameen Region over the next 25 years.

    It is important that transit priorities are frequently re-evaluated to guide transit service decision-making as the region continues to grow, develop and change.

    In order to update these priorities over the next five years, BC Transit is developing a Transit Future Action Plan (TFAP).

    Why do we need your help?

    The process of public engagement will allow residents of the South-Okanagan Similkameen to provide input towards:

    • Transit service and infrastructure priorities
    • Service details for future expansions
  • Service Expansion - 30 Summerland/Penticton
