The City of Penticton's goal is to support public transit as a comfortable, affordable, safe and convenient means of local and regional transportation.
Monthly transit passes are available to purchase from Berry & Smith, Safeway, London Drugs and City Hall.
Berry & Smith are open to the public and have a stock of all transit tickets, and can be reached by phoning 250-492-4042 or by going to 301 Warren Avenue East, Penticton, V2A 3M1.
Bus Service in Penticton
Penticton Transit has a modern fleet of "low floor" transit buses that are fully accessible. Buses operate six days a week excluding statutory holidays. During summer, a lake-to-lake route is offered every Sunday and holiday from the last Sunday in June to Labour Day in September.
All accessible Penticton buses (except the Naramata bus) are equipped with bike racks that can carry up to two bicycles at a time.
Safety is our top priority. BC Transit has adjusted its face coverings policy and they are no longer mandatory on board buses. The organization supports riders who choose to continue wearing a face covering on board. For more details, visit BC Transit's COVID-19 update.
