Transportation

Promote a Bicycle culture and improved Public Transit and Key Roads

Continue to expand public transit. I have promoted working with other local municipalities in establishing STPCO which is the Sustainable Transportation Plan for the Central Okanagan. This promotes walking, bicycle use, and public transportation with a goal or reducing the dependence on the automobile. Implemented Rapid Bus on Highway 97 from UBCO to West Kelowna (2013.)

Implement a Rapid Bus system on Gordon Drive (Future plan) 

Continue to expand safe bicycle lanes throughout the city. Kelowna is now home to over 330 kilometers of on-street bicycle lanes. My goal is to see a loop of off-street bicycle paths linking all major hubs of the City. 

Finally we will have a road and bicycle connection from the Glenmore Valley to UBCO. This vital link was long overdue. I have supported this link for many years. (This was one of my first goals when I first ran for office in 2008)

Promote Phase II of the Highway 33 extension to Downtown Kelowna.
