Rec & Ride Summer Youth pass is back in Kelowna

Passes are $20 for children up to age 12 and $50 for youth ages 13-18
Youth can ride the bus for a discount this summer.

Discounted transit passes for children and youth are back in business this summer in Kelowna. 

The Rec & Ride Summer Youth pass includes access to both local transit and Parkinson Recreation Centre services throughout July and August for those aged 18 and under. Passes are $20 for children up to age 12 and $50 for youth ages 13-18. 

“Last year’s response to the pass was overwhelming and we are thrilled to once again offer this program which helps inspire kids and youth to get active with us while they’re out of school for the summer, along with the ride to get here via BC Transit,” says Lisa Ruether, recreation services supervisor. 

With the pass, youth will be able to ride anywhere within Kelowna on the bus throughout July and August. Kids 12 and under already ride the bus for free.  

Passes can be purchased in-person at Parkinson Recreation Centre (1800 Parkinson Way) starting June 20 and will be valid from June 28 until September 2, 2024.

First-time pass holders must be present at the time of purchase to have their photo taken for the pass, and identification is required for children aged 13 and up, including school ID or driver’s license.

The Rec & Ride Summer Youth Pass is offered with financial support from the Stober Foundation to help support barrier-free access to activities for kids.
