New transit routes coming in September
Aug 24, 2013 / 5:00 am
There will be a number of changes to Kelowna transit routes this fall, with many of these changes beginning Sept. 1.
The #14 route Black Mountain will now end at the new Rutland Centre Transit Exchange along Shepherd Road. An underutilized portion of the route along the Begley Road and the Lund Road loop will also no longer be part of the transit area.
According to BC Transit, customers will still have reasonable access via bus stops on Black Mountain Drive or Large Avenue.
Other changes will see the #17 route Southridge amended in the Upper Mission area to provide better coverage to the Ponds development and its new town centre. The route will also operate via Gordon Drive to Frost Road, South Ridge Drive and Arbor View Drive, continuing along Gordon to the Mission Recreation Exchange.
The #23 route Lake Country will now be serving Innovation Drive between UBCO and Airport Way in both directions to improve access to the area.
Sept. 1 will also mark the seasonal return of routes #4 Pandosy/UBCO Express, #6 Glenmore/UBCO Express, #13 Quail Ridge and all other school-related trips that were on summer hiatus.
