Join us in building a better Transit Future for Kamloops! BC Transit, in partnership with the City of Kamloops, is hosting a public engagement process that will include both online and in-person opportunities to participate.
The City of Kamloops recently approved up to 3,000 expansion hours, funded by provincial and city contributions, for implementation in September 2017. The upcoming engagement sessions will provide transit users with an opportunity to help us identify improvements and efficiencies for the transit system. The consultation will also allow for feedback on the service changes implemented in 2015.
“As the population in Kamloops continues to grow, our transit services must also expand and adapt,” said Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone. “We are committed to engaging with the local community to ensure the services being delivered best reflect their changing needs.”
Visit us on Wednesday, November 30, Thursday, December 1 or Sunday, December 4 to have your say in-person. Representatives from BC Transit and the City of Kamloops will be on hand to hear your ideas on how to best improve transit service for your neighbourhood and the region.

“We are proud to build a better Transit Future in Kamloops through direct engagement,” said Erinn Pinkerton, BC Transit Executive Director of Business Development. “These engagement sessions give us the chance to be face-to-face with the Kamloops community, ensuring that we are providing the most robust transit solutions possible.”
This new round of consultation builds on transit engagement that began in 2012. Since the Transit Future plan began, a number of key improvements have been made in Kamloops to bolster efficiency and effectiveness of the system.
