Bus stops buried in snow

Penticton bus stops are buried in snow, but the city is working hard to clear them.

Knee-deep piles of snow block access from the sidewalk to the bus at many locations — a side effect of city plows clearing the streets after this weekend’s snowstorm.

Castanet News has received complaints from transit riders frustrated and worried they may hurt themselves while boarding BC Transit buses that have been forced to load passengers in the middle of the road at some stops.

City of Penticton Public Works manager Len Robson said clearing the bus stops is on the city's to-do list, and crews are working hard.

"We just ask the public for patience, we need to remove the snow so that will take time," Robson said.

Robson said crews have plowed every road at least once so far, with efforts focused on the downtown core.
