Vernon Regional Transit System

Vernon Regional Transit System

Starting July 20, 2016, BC Transit will launch a province-wide campaign to educate British Columbians on all the incredible summer destinations that can be reached using BC Transit. The campaign will launch BC Transit’s Instagram account and a microsite with downloadable maps. By finding attractions across the province with the help of BC Transit’s routes and our partner Destination BC, British Columbians will have plenty of summer adventures at their fingertips. We want British Columbians to ride and seek adventure all summer long!
