Bolster Transit Services
"I think we can all agree that we should drive our cars less, but what's the alternative?"
To be honest, I haven't ridden the Transit system in Kelowna for many years, but I have spoken with many who have and still take the bus daily. The overwhelming general opinion of those who do use it as their main form of transportation is that Kelowna Transit is lacking. Proper safe pullouts for buses on busy roadways, updated routes, and lack of central hubs are a few issues that are mentioned.
The Transit Drivers are struggling with poor work conditions, inadequate pay, and little to no incentive to stay in that line of work.
This City needs to re-evaluate what is out there to improve mobility and consider alternative solutions like an LRT system, UBER and, incentives to ride bikes when the seasons permit.
