Transit changes on route

Some key changes to Vernon’s transit system are moving ahead.

Hybrid routing on the #7 Okanagan Landing is gone Sept. 2 and Sunday routing is changing too.

“The route #7 Okanagan Landing had two variations on its daily schedule,” said  Meribeth Burton, with B.C. Transit.

“Now route #7 will be split. The new route #7 Okanagan Landing will always include the Heritage/Tronson Road Loop. The new route #8 Bella Vista will travel from the main transit terminus to Bella Vista Road and return along Okanagan Landing Road.”

Sunday service on routes #1 through #8 will now reflect the routing that is already offered Monday through Saturday.

“The changes will see an additional 540 service hours a year,” said Burton.

“Vernon is one of B.C. Transit’s most successful systems with 440,000 trips in 2011/12. That’s an 8.7 per cent increase over last year.”
