NYE Party Loop shuttle returning to Penticton

BC Transit and the City of Penticton want to make sure everyone arrives safely on Dec. 31

The City of Penticton and BC Transit are once again offering a free New Year’s Eve Party Loop shuttle.

According to the shuttle’s schedule, the Part Loop bus will complement the regular night route with direct service to the malls, downtown, both lakes and the community centre.

“The bus routes along Martin from Downtown, then via Main Street past Penticton Plaza to Cherry Lane Mall,” reads the schedule. “It then runs along Main and Skaha Lake Road to the Channel Parkway and returns to the Peachtree mall via Green. The bus then returns downtown via Main Street to Martin, along Westminster, Burnaby, Riverside, Lakeshore, Winnipeg and Westminster to Martin.”

In addition to this shuttle, routes 5 Main Street and 16 Lake to Lake will be running on their regular Sunday schedules.

Penticton Transit will be offering its regular service on Dec. 24 and Dec. 27-30. There will be no transit service on Dec. 25 and Sunday-level service on Dec. 26.

Jan. 1 will also have Sunday-level service, with transit returning to regular service on Jan. 2. For more information, service updates and alerts in Penticton, visit www.bctransit.com/south-okanagan-similkameen.
