Queensway transit exchange reopens in Kelowna

The Queensway transit exchange is reopening Sunday after a $5.6-million upgrade.

KELOWNA - Transit users in Kelowna will soon be using the upgraded Queensway transit exchange when it reopens on Sunday.

Built as an all-weather facility, the Queensway transit exchange will cover the centre island of the old bus loop, giving riders shelter from the elements and increased security.

Pedestrian crossings around the exchange have also been improved and the project includes bus-only access from Ellis Street.

The temporary exchange along Ellis Street will close as the new exchange opens.

The $5.6-million upgrade is part of the B.C. Transit RapidBus project. Kelowna RapidBus is a partnership between all levels of government and includes the District of West Kelowna and Westbank First Nation.
