Penticton Transit provides local public transportation services in the City of Penticton in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada, with a fleet of fully accessible low floor transit buses. The system consists of eight scheduled routes serving the city, which includes a night route; a connecting service by Okanagan-Similkameen Transit to the community of Naramata; a summer lake-to-lake route; and a HandyDART service for people who are unable to use regular transit.
Funding is provided for the relevant services under a partnership between Penticton or the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen, and BC Transit, the agency which plans and manages municipal transit systems within the province. The Berry & Smith subsidiary Penticton Transit Service Ltd is the operator.
All routes service the two main focal points of the system: Downtown Penticton Exchange and Cherry Lane Mall.
Okanagan College, Penticton Regional Hospital, Peachtree Square and the Penticton Plaza are serviced by at least 3 routes each.
There is no service on Christmas Day. Service operates on a Sunday schedule on all other statutory holidays.
