Funding for Shuswap Transit is cost-shared between the City of Salmon Arm, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District and BC Transit. Decisions on fares, routes and service levels are made by City Council and the District Board based on information and planning provided by BC Transit. Buses are operated by FirstCanada ULC.
Inviting youth to enjoy the community's summer hot spots, the City of Salmon Arm and the Shuswap Regional Transit System are offering free transit to youth under the age of 18 during:
July 1 - September 1
Pro-D days during the school year
Promoting the bus as a safe and available means of transportation, the City of Salmon Arm encourages kids to get on board and ride the bus to their favourite summer activities. With free bus rides all summer, kids have more travel options and access to these activities.
This campaign is intended for youth under the age of 18. Drivers may request to see personal identification. Considerate and appropriate behaviour is expected from all riders.
