B.C. Transit brings bus display to Fall Fair

The Transit Future Bus will make its rounds in the South Okanagan next week, concluding with a stop at the Summerland Fall Fair.

The Transit Future Bus will make its rounds in the South Okanagan next week, concluding with a stop at the Summerland Fall Fair.

The 12-metre decommissioned bus has been converted into an interactive public consultation tool.

B.C. Transit is using the bus to get input about its 25-year Transit Future Plan for the area.

“To meet the growing demands for transit in the South Okanagan-Similkameen, we at BC Transit, must listen to what our customers and community partners want and need,” said B.C. Transit President and 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.”

In Summerland, the bus will be at the Summerland Fall Fair, 8820 Jubilee Rd. E., on Saturday, Sept. 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Those who are not able to attend the Transit Future Bus open house may submit their comments online to bctransit.com/transitfuture until Sept. 29.

The interactive bus display comes as Summerland is about to get a scheduled transit service. The official opening of the new transit service is on Sept. 21, with the first bus on Sept. 28.

Since at least 1999, municipal officials have worked to bring a scheduled transit service into the community.
