South Okanagan-Similkameen Transit System serves the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen, including the communities of Penticton, Summerland, Naramata, Hedley, Kaleden, Okanagan Falls, Gallagher Lake, Coalmont, Oliver, Osoyoos, Keremeos, and Princeton and area.

History

South Okanagan-Similkameen Transit System was created on July 1, 2017 through the merger of five local systems: Penticton Transit System, Princeton & Area Transit System, Okanagan-Similkameen Transit System (Naramata/Okanagan Falls), South Okanagan Transit System (Osoyoos), and Summerland Transit System.[1] The merger of the systems will centralize information from 5 systems into one Rider's Guide and website, and introduce a new harmonized fare structure.
