SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS

Kelowna Regional Transit

Transit provides a sustainable alternative to single occupancy vehicles, lowering harmful carbon emissions, and saving expenses associated with owning and operating a vehicle.

Kelowna Regional Transit provides many options for transit to and from UBC’s Okanagan campus, including a rapidbus service introduced in 2010.

For options please see:


Student U-Pass Program

The UBC Okanagan campus has a U-Pass program, which provides students with unlimited access to Kelowna Regional Transit System.

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

UBC Okanagan has twelve electric vehicle charging stations on campus, which are located in Parking Lot E within the Transit Exchange and Parking Lot G near the west campus access off John Hindle Drive.

The six charging stations located in Lot E are standard outlets – 120v and 22v (30 amp) – and are identified by yellow posts and painted EV markings. Users will need to bring the appropriate cable to use these.

The six charging stations in Lot G have the J1772 connector and are identified by the blue charging station, signage and painted EV markings.
