Transit service: Penticton to Kelowna AAP

From time to time BC Transit does a study and decides this or that route would be worth establishing. Recently, BC Transit decided a Penticton-Kelowna route would make sense.1  This is good news for the South Okanagan because BC Transit (read: taxpayers in the rest of British Columbia) heavily subsidizes rural transit routes.  I don't have the exact numbers on hand, but think of the cost of each ride being allocated roughly in this way:

  • BC Transit pays 50%
  • local taxpayers pay 40%
  • riders (through their fares) pay 10%
