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.
For more information about the U-Pass, please contact the UBC Students’ Union Okanagan.

Carpool.ca is a free registration-based option for commuters with two or more occupants. Each parking lot on campus has dedicated preferred parking spots for car-poolers. Registration, including finding a ride-match is available online.
For information on how to obtain a car-pool parking pass, please visit Parking Services Permits and Fees.
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.
