A new bus route linking Penticton and Kelowna will launch on Sept. 3.

The No. 70 Penticton-Kelowna bus, part of the South Okanagan-Similkameen Transit System, will provide two round trips at commuter times each weekday and two additional midday trips on Mondays.

It will also stop in Summerland.

The fare will be $5.

The No. 60 Osoyoos-Kelowna bus, which stopped in Penticton and ran only on Mondays, will be discontinued.
