The Transit Future Bus came back to the South Similkameen for a second round of community consultations on Tuesday, July 22.

The Transit Future Team travelled with the bus, seeking feedback on the proposed transit network that was developed following phase one consultations. The team was also available to answer questions.

The Transit Future Bus first toured the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys last fall, seeking public opinion in order to develop the region’s 25-year Transit Future Plan. During the first phase more than 1100 people shared their vision for the future of transit.


The Transit Future Bus is a 40-foot decommissioned bus that has been transformed in to an interactive public consultation tool.

It was set up in the parking lot of the Keremeos Infocentre on July 23 from 1 – 3 p.m.


The bus will also visit Okanagan Falls, arriving in the community on Saturday, July 26 from 1 – 4 p.m.
