South Okanagan-SimilkameenTransit Future Action Plan

BC Transit, the Regional District of South Okanagan-Similkameen, City of Penticton, Town of Princeton, District of Summerland, Town of Osoyoos, Town of Oliver, and the community of Okanagan Falls are seeking the public’s feedback on how we can improve transit across the South Okanagan-Similkameen region.

BC Transit is seeking input from the public to identify transit priorities to help develop a Transit Future Action Plan, which will support transit decision-making, service and infrastructure improvements.

A Transit Future Action Plan will provide a vision and implementation strategy for improving the region’s transit network in the short to medium term.

Provide your feedback through an online survey  available until April 15.


What is Transit Future?

Transit Future is all about you, your transit system and your community. Developed with your input, these plans outline what your transit system will look like in the future. Depending on the community and its specific needs, a plan can take a variety of different forms.

Learn more about the different types of Transit Future Plans here.  By being part of the development of a Transit Future Plan, you are helping to improve transit for yourself and for your entire community. So get involved, share your input, and be a part of shaping your transit system now and for the generation to come.

Why do we need Transit Future?

Transit Future guides transit investment that is supportive of livable communities, through:

  •     Offering more transportation choice
  •     Supporting smart land use plans that focus on walking, cycling and transit
  •     Meeting climate change goals
  •     Making it easy to access everyday services on foot, by bike and by transit

Help us Plan Your Future

Population and traffic growth means we need to shift our focus from moving cars to moving people. To minimize the high economic, environmental and social costs of traffic congestion and road expansion, we must move people more efficiently. Transportation should take us where we want to go, when we want to go there. To create an efficient system, we need your input.

How do I get involved?

All stages of the creation and implementation of a Transit Future Plan provide opportunities to get involved. Check back here often for information on how to share your input!
