The RapidBus service wlll feature exchanges at Okanagan College, Rutland, Queensway, South Pandosy, Boucherie Mountain and Westbank Centre and is scheduled to come online early 2015.

The project is the result of a partnership between Transport Canada, The B.C. Ministry of Transportation, City of Kelowna, District of West Kelowna, Westbank First Nation and B.C. Transit.
