Requests for Proposals (RFPs) have been issued for the construction of a new transit exchange at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus in Kelowna, BC. The RFPs reflect the entirety of the project, from design to construction.
The exchange project will include up to nine new bus bays and four bus layover stations, as well as transit shelters, transit lanes on Alumni Avenue and Transit Way (a roadway that will be created as part of the project), and bicycle storage lockers.
“Providing access to reliable public transportation and world class education are core commitments of the Province,” said MLA for Kelowna-Lake Country Norm Letnick in a release.
“As Kelowna grows, so does demand for sustainable transportation options,” said Jerry Dombowsky, Transit and Programs Manager at the City of Kelowna. “With these expansions at UBC Okanagan, we are taking proactive steps towards boosting the capacity of our transit system.”
The new transit exchange project is the result of a partnership between the Government of Canada, Province of BC, UBC Okanagan and the City of Kelowna.
