Public Transit is an essential service for the UBC Okanagan community to get to and from campus.
Route Updates for Fall 2020
With transit ridership impacted by COVID-19, Kelowna Regional Transit is reducing the frequency of service to UBCO and suspending some routes temporarily until travel patterns resume. Changes include:
- The #6 Glenmore route offering express bus service from downtown Kelowna, via Glenmore, and across John Hindle Drive accompanied by extended service hours and frequency
- Re-routing the #4 Pandosy/UBCO Express from Highway 97 to Academy Way
- Extending #23 Lake Country service hours and frequency
- Suspending the #13 Quail Ridge route
U-Pass Updates for Fall 2020
While all full-time students normally receive a U-Pass, a universal transportation pass that gives unlimited access to regional public transportation, there are some changes for fall 2020. Instead of an automatic process, the U-Pass program will be an opt-in model. Information on acquiring the U-Pass can be found at the UBC Students’ Union Okanagan.
