Kelowna to gather public input about transit service at Okanagan College

The City and its design consultant, Stantec Consulting, will host a series of public consultation sessions about transportation improvements at the Okanagan College campus on KLO Road.

The first open house will be Thursday, Jan 17, at the campus. Information about the project will be available and the project team will collect feedback on current challenges and future opportunities.

The open house will start at 5  p.m. and run until  7 p.m. in the college's Centre for Learning atrium.

The city's Official Community Plan recognizes KLO Road in the Okanagan College area as a priority corridor for multi-use and active transportation. Transit amenities, road infrastructure and pedestrian and cycling linkages in the area have been identified by the city and B.C. Transit as investment priorities, with construction of a new transit exchange slated for in this summer.

The Okanagan College transit exchange and KLO Road improvements are part of B.C. Transit's RapidBus phase 2 and 3 work. The overall project includes creating and upgrading transit facilities throughout the region.

Th open house is the first step in the public consultation process for this project.

At future events, the project team will present potential options for consideration based on public feedback and technical input from the design consultant.

The final step will be to present the recommended design.
