The Kelowna Regional Transit System is reducing its service amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Beginning April 5, BC Transit will be implementing summer level of service to all Okanagan municipalities it serves.
Changes will include:
- Service reductions and schedule changes on various routes that reflect summer service
- Discontinuation of routes 4 Pandosy/UBCO Express and 13 Quail Ridge for the summer
- Schedule change for route 97 Okanagan and 23 Lake Country to improve on-time performance
The service changes also take into account having sufficient service to allow for physical distancing while travelling on public transit.
“The response to COVID-19 is a fluid situation that businesses, governments, and people are adjusting to across the country and around the world,” read a release from BC Transit. “BC Transit will continue to monitor available resources and provide service updates on a day-to-day basis. We thank our customers for their patience, and apologize for the inconvenience.”
