PENTICTON – The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen along with the City of Penticton, Town of Osoyoos, Town of Princeton, District of Summerland and BC Transit are inviting the public to get on board with the region’s 25-year Transit Future Plan.

From September 10 to 15, 2013 BC Transit is bringing the ‘Transit Future Bus’ to various locations throughout the South Okanagan region to connect with community members about area-specific transit needs, priorities and concerns.

The 40-foot decommissioned bus has been transformed into an interactive public consultation tool. The Transit Future Bus features educational displays that include a draft of the South Okanagan’s 25-year transit plan, Post-It note boards for rider-led initiatives, an iPad station and a Kids’ Zone. The Transit Future Team will be traveling with the bus to answer questions and help visitors learn more about public transportation in the region.

“To meet the growing demands for transit in the South Okanagan, we at BC Transit, must listen to what our customers and community partners want and need,” said BC Transit President & CEO Manuel Achadinha. “Bringing the Transit Future Bus to popular community events and destinations, allows us to hear from more people on how to best grow a regional transit system that we can all take pride.”
