Osoyoos/Penticton bus service expanded to Fridays

Aug 21, 2017
Transit System: South Okanagan-Similkameen

Osoyoos – Starting September 5, transit users in Osoyoos, Oliver and Kaleden will be able to take the bus to Penticton five days of the week, thanks to the addition of a new day of service to route 40 Osoyoos/Penticton.

This service expansion amounts to a total of 350 new hours added to the Okanagan-Similkameen Transit System, allowing route 40 Osoyoos/Penticton to offer service on Fridays, as well as keeping its existing Tuesday through Thursday runs. The new Friday schedule will mirror the Tuesday through Thursday service, with the first bus leaving Osoyoos at 7:30 a.m. The Monday Health Connections service will continue to take passengers to medical appointments as far away as Kelowna.

This service expansion is possible thanks to funding from the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen and the Province of B.C. It comes in response to public feedback and consultations, and is part of the South Okanagan-Similkameen Transit Future Plan.
