To begin, I’d like to say a big thanks to B.C. Transit. Over the past few years. there has been much debate over adding buses on the 90 route from Vernon to UBCO in Kelowna.
They have managed to fix most of the problems and it is much simpler for us commuters to get to school at a reasonable time.
However, there are still a few main issues that I would like to bring forth as suggestions.
First of all, a beautiful new highway was built by the province between Oyama and Winfield.
Though many do not know, the 90 route bus still uses the old road to Kelowna which now has a reduced speed limit of 50 kilometres per hour.
This seems exceptionally silly as it could cut down our travel time by 10 minutes at least. The reason for this ties into the second problem.
Our bus needs to make stops in Oyama. My question is why one main bus stop has not yet been created for Oyama or why they do not have their own bus?
Also, by the time we arrive in Oyama, the bus is usually full.
My very last complaint is perhaps the most important to me.
It would be phenomenal if B.C. Transit added a 10 a.m. bus to the 90 route.
It seems silly to complain after B.C. Transit has solved so many problems already, but many of us start classes at 11:30 a.m. and it is exceptionally frustrating to have to board the 9 a.m. bus to make that class.
All of these are suggestions that I hope will be at least taken into consideration.
