South Okanagan-Similkameen Transit Fare and Transfer Policies

Local and Regional Routes

Often passengers need to use two buses to reach their destination. While transfers are free, please remember the following transfer policies:

  • When paying a local or regional fare, a transfer allows one-way travel on a second bus for up to 90 minutes from your original departure time.
  • If paying with a Umo fare product, an electronic transfer will be automatically applied to your Umo payment method when validating payment on your first bus. When boarding your second bus, simply tap or scan your Umo payment method to continue to travel without incurring an additional fare.
  • If paying with cash, request a transfer when you board your first bus. Show your transfer to the next driver, face up, with time showing. Expiry time is final.

To simplify travel and minimize cost, consider purchasing a DayPASS before boarding a bus. A local or regional DayPASS allows unlimited travel within a service day.

Route 70 Kelowna/Penticton

  • Route 70 Kelowna/Penticton Requires its own standalone fare.
  • Transfers, tickets, DayPASSes, 30-Day Passes, or Monthly Passes from South Okanagan-Similkameen Transit and Kelowna Regional Transit systems are not accepted on route 70 Penticton/Kelowna.
  • Route 70 Kelowna/Penticton tickets and monthly passes are not accepted on the South Okanagan-Similkameen Transit or Kelowna Regional Transit Systems. Instead, fares for those systems must be paid.
