Connecting Our Region

Our first region-wide transportation plan

The Regional Transportation Plan will help shape the future of the Central Okanagan region by identifying the transportation investments that will be needed over the next 20 years. 

Strengthening economic competitiveness and quality of life

Transportation across the region provides a vital connection to jobs, markets, health care, education, recreation, shopping, emergency services and family and friends.

Currently, 24% of all trips in the Central Okanagan cross municipal boundaries, as people travel from one community to another to access services and employment.

The economic, social and environmental issues affecting all our communities are directly impacted by the transportation choices we make as a region. Better regional transportation can mean a stronger economy and quality of life. 

Do you travel across our region for work, to visit family or access services? 

We want to hear from you!

Public consultation will take place throughout the planning process. Stay up to date on input opportunities at smarttrips.ca

Over 250 residents attended information kiosks throughout the region during the month of April. The engagement summary outlines what we heard from residents throughout the Central Okanagan.
