Skip the parking, take transit to Peachfest

Transit putting on extra buses for Penticton’s Peach Festival

With all the great entertainment coming to Peach Festival, who wants to worry about finding a parking spot.

The City of Penticton and BC Transit are making it easier for people to get to and from the 2017 Peach Festival by offering additional service on Route 5 (Main Street) for the duration of the festival, including Saturday-level service on Sunday, Aug. 13.

Between Wednesday, Aug. 9 and Sunday, Aug. 13, Route 5 will run late into the evening, with the last bus leaving the festival site at 11:41 p.m. on all five days. Buses will use Veterans Way from Front Street, then turn left onto Lakeshore Drive. There will be a temporary bus stop at Okanagan Lake Park (on Veterans, just before Lakeshore).

Regular fares will apply. For more information, service updates and alerts in Penticton, please visit bctransit.com/south-okanagan-similkameen.
