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.

Car-Pooling 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

The UBC Okanagan campus has installed six electric vehicle charging stations in Parking Lot E, across from the bus loop. Look for the yellow posts and pained EV markings at relevant parking stalls.

For day-use or long-term use, please contact Parking Services to obtain day-use access or a longer-term parking permit. At this time no charges apply for EV use.
