Public Transit is an essential service for the UBC Okanagan community to get to and from campus.
Note: BC Transit has advised that there are potential service challenges facing public transit in the Kelowna Regional Transit System, as a result of the transit strike. For updates on the impacts to transit service, please visit for News and Customer Alerts from BC Transit.
For the most up-to-date information, BC Transit is asking its customers to use Nextride (from desktop/laptop) or the Transit App (from mobile device/tablet) for real-time bus tracking and trip planning.
Seasonal Service Changes
BC Transit adjusts service levels seasonally for the Winter, Summer and Fall. Check for up to date transit information at the start of each semester from the Kelowna Regional Transit System online, via Nextride or the Transit App.
