Transit travel made easier

The South Okanagan-Similkameen Transit System will make travel easier for customers.

Using transit in the South Okanagan-Similkameen is about to get easier thanks to a new fare structure, rider’s guide and website.

Previously, the five separate systems in the region had their own rider’s guide and fare structure.

The local municipalities have partnered to agree on a new fare structure, rider’s guide and website.

The communities involved in the change in the South Okanagan-Similkameen include Penticton, Summerland, Naramata, Hedley, Kaleden, Okanagan Falls, Gallagher Lake, Coalmont, Oliver, Osoyoos, Keremeos, and Princeton and area.

Starting July 1, these routes will be will be shown in one rider’s guide and on one webpage. The new fare structure will lead to a phased introduction of new fare products that can be used on local and regional routes. Current fare products will be accepted until the end of the year.
