Penticton transit users left out

Penticton woman said transit excludes her from evening events.

Penticton has so much to offer at Peachfest for five glorious days.

Unfortunately, as a transit user, I am excluded from any of the late evening events, such as Lighthouse, as they came on at 9:45 p.m. and the last night bus leaves at 9:38 p.m. from Wade Avenue and Main Street.

This is the same for every evening of the festival. It gets worse on Sunday, as there’s no night service. Too bad the city is only interested in extending service on New Year’s Eve, and then it’s also free.

Thanks to the Downtown Penticton Association for putting their Gyro Park concerts on at 7 p.m.

Not only did I get to enjoy Romanza last month, but was there on Monday to hear Michael Burgess.
