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 β€” Kelowna, West Kelowna, Peachland and Lake Country β€” on Saturday, Nov. 15.

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

β€œThe 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.
