On the buses in Vernon

In an effort to improve bussing in Vernon, BC Transit is going to the public.

The crown corporation will be welcoming public feedback at five transit consultation stations in Vernon on Friday, Sept. 22 and Saturday, Sept. 23.

BC Transit will be asking people for input on proposed route changes, including the creation of a new route to connect downtown to North Vernon.

Changes to a number of routes are planned for March 2018 including:

  • ï‚·  2 Pleasant Valley
  • ï‚·  3 Alexis Park
  • ï‚·  7 OK Landing
  • ï‚·  8 Bella Vista

The changes are part of the North Okanagan transit future plan and aim to improve transit efficiency by reducing duplication and streamlining routing, the company said in a press release.

Feedback gathered through these public consultations will help our planning and scheduling teams to create final routing and schedules," the release stated.
