The back panel of this transit shelter on Gordon Drive near Raymer Avenue is one of many missing in the area, possibly smashed by someone driving a car into them.

A rampage during the evening of Dec. 15 damaged a dozen transit shelters on Gordon Drive, Springfield and Lakeshore roads in Kelowna.

That increased the number of recently damaged shelters to 37 and the estimated cost of repairs to $50,000, according to an email from the City of Kelowna.

A drive along Springfield Road and Gordon Drive show a number of shelters missing back or end panels but no damage to the shelter supports.

Kelowna RCMP are reviewing videotapes and say that at least some of the damage seems to have been caused by a grey sedan-style car.
