Take free public transit on election day

"If someone doesn't have a way to the polls, we want to be sure to give them the opportunity to vote," says Dombowsky.

To ensure everyone has an opportunity to vote in the Local General Election, Kelowna Regional Transit is offering free bus service throughout its service area — Kelowna, West Kelowna, Peachland and Lake Country — on Saturday, Nov. 15.

Free service will operate at no charge to all riders all day long on General Voting Day.

“The free transit on election day gives citizens another option to get out and vote to support the democratic process. It gives them a convenient way of getting to and from the polls,” says Regional Programs Manager Jerry Dombowsky.

“If someone doesn’t have a way to the polls, we want to be sure to give them the opportunity to vote,” says Dombowsky.
