Penticton Public Bus

Conventional

Low-floor buses were designed to make travel on the conventional transit system accessible to people who use mobility aids, or who have difficulties stepping up to the older-style buses.  These buses have a kneeling feature that allows the floor of the bus to come within 25 cm of the road surface. The low-floor buses are equipped with a ramp for wheelchair and scooter access, and can accommodate two wheelchairs or one scooter at once. All routes on the Penticton Transit System are accessible.  The low-floor buses operate on a fixed-route schedule. For information about schedules and fares, visit Busonline, call Transit Information at 492-5602 or refer to the Penticton Riders’ Guide.
