BC Transit and the City of Kelowna are working to make the transit system more efficient and effective with a number of service changes beginning Sept. 1.

The Route #23 Lake Country will now be serving Innovation Drive between UBCO and Airport Way in both directions to improve access to the area.

The Route #14 Black Mountain will end at the new Rutland Centre Transit Exchange along Shepherd Road. An under-utilized portion of the route along the Begley Road and the Lund Road loop will also no longer be part of the transit coverage area. Customers will still have reasonable access via bus stops on Black Mountain Drive or Large Avenue.

In Upper Mission, the Route #17 Southridge will be amended to provide better coverage to the Ponds development and its new town centre. The Route #17 will now operate via Gordon Drive to Frost Road, South Ridge Drive and Arbor View Drive, continuing along Gordon to the Mission Recreation Exchange.

Sept. 1 also marks the seasonal return of routes #4 Pandosy/UBCO Express, # 6 Glenmore/UBCO Express, #13 Quail Ridge and all other school-related trips that were on summer hiatus.

For more information on the fall changes please pick up a Rider’s Guide on the bus, call 250.860.8121 or consult www.bctransit.com/regions/kel
