Canada and British Columbia invest to improve BC Transit bus shelters for the new RapidBus in Kelowna, B.C.
Kelowna: The safety and well-being of Canadians are top priorities of the governments of Canada and British Columbia. Investments in public transit infrastructure during this unprecedented time provides an opportunity to create jobs, stimulate economic growth, and make our communities more inclusive and resilient.
Today, the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion, on behalf of the Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, and the Honourable Rob Fleming, B.C. Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, announced joint funding of $282,500 to install two bus shelters for the new RapidBus station located on Highway 97 and Sexsmith Road in Kelowna, B.C.
These shelters will improve the comfort and safety of transit users thanks to upgrades that will offer protection against weather conditions as well as better lighting and seating. Better accessibility will help encourage more individuals to use public transit to commute.
Through the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan’s Public Transit Infrastructure Stream, the Government of Canada is investing $113,000. The Government of British Columbia is investing $169,500 in this project.
