Queensway Transit Exchange

Project: Queensway Transit Exchange
Year Completed: 2015

The Queensway exchange was originally constructed in 1998, is restricted to bus-only traffic between Pandosy and Ellis streets and was designed to accommodate a future building. Key considerations for the building include attractive landscape treatments, decorative and functional transit amenities to enhance user comfort and security, wide pedestrian sidewalks, re-configured parking layout and intersection improvements and controls. 

Projected increases in transit ridership as a result of the RapidBus extension to West Kelowna and growth in Kelowna’s central business district area also warrants further investment in transit infrastructure and amenities.

Greater emphasis on walkability, cycling and improving transit service are highest priorities as well as investments in pedestrian/cycle networks, transit and road infrastructure and supportive amenities to provide a balance of mobility options for today and well into the future.
