Princeton residents explore Transit Future Bus

The opportunity for residents to get a better view of the Transit Future Plan was given last Wednesday in Princeton.

The BC Transit Future Bus parked in Veterans Square last Wednesday in order to give residents the chance to explore the Transit Future Plan and speak with BC Transit representatives.

A 40-foot decommissioned bus transformed into an interactive public consultation tool with a draft of the 25 year transit plan has been on tour since Sept. 10.

The opportunity for residents to get a better view of the Transit Future Plan was given last Wednesday by Steve Harvard, Regional Transit Manager – Southern Interior and transit representatives who were on hand to answer questions.

The plan is a partnership between BC Transit, the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen (RDOS) and member municipalities who are working towards the development of a 25 year future plan to try to meet the growing needs for transit in the South Okanagan-Similkameen.

Public consultation is the first part of the plan. With the tour, BC Transit is helping residents to learn more about public transit and are gathering information from residents to learn more about community needs.

Together with the communities input and the existing plans, options and ideas for service will be put together.

During the Spring of 2014 BC Transit will go on tour again visiting the communities to show residents the options and to get feedback as well as thoughts on how they should be prioritized.

If you were unable to view the Transit Bus while it was here in Princeton, you have until Sept. 29, 2013 to add your comments online at
