A daily shuttle service running from Osoyoos to the Kelowna airport began Monday, August 11.

The new service will make 10 inter-community stops along the way and is sheduled to run four round trips per day.

The service is expected to improve access throughout the valley for residents and tourists alike.

Late last year, a network of Okanagan-based organizations joined together to provide air travellers with improved ground transportation options to Penticton and Kelowna Airports. Additionally, the service would improve inter-community access for locals and visitors.

Let’s Go! Transportation was selected as the contractor for the service, selected through a Request for Proposals.

Rates between Kelowna to Osoyoos are $45 one way or $30 from Penticton to Kelowna Airport. Air Canada, normally in the business of air service, sees this as a unique opportunity to connect air travellers to both Kelowna and Penticton airports to the entire south Okanagan.
