Westside given opportunity to vote on bus service

Voting begins Nov. 13

The public will have an opportunity to contribute comments and suggestions on proposed changes to bus service on the Westside.

The proposed changes, which would take effect in September 2019, would involve expanding off-peak transit service on Route 97 Okanagan and local routes on the Westside; there are also proposed changes for routes 24 Shannon Lake and 28 Smith Creek, with new service extended to the Shannon Lake and Tallus Ridge neighbourhoods.
