There will soon be a new transit connection in the Okanagan.

Mountain Man Mike’s Bus Service announced today, June 12, their Kelowna run has been approved by the provincial passenger transportation board.

The new route will provide intercity service from Kelowna to Osoyoos and connect to the company’s two pre-existing bus systems offering service to and from Vancouver, Osoyoos, Kelowna, Nelson, Cranbrook, Lethbridge, Calgary and 88 small towns in between.

The company applied to the B.C. Transportation board on May 20 for an amendment to its present license. 

Operator Mike Hathaway says the company is environmentally conscious, using bio fuel such as used fryer oil to power its transit buses.

 A post on the company's Facebook page says booking for the Kelowna service will be available July 31, with a schedule to be released soon.

For more details and to purchase tickets, see the Mountain Mike's website.
