Take the Bus! Transit is free on Canada Day
» Saturday’s Transit Schedule – with extended hours!
Avoid the hassle of trying to find parking, a great opportunity to introduce residents who may not otherwise ride the bus and lessens congestion in the downtown area, and reduces overall greenhouse gas emissions.
Hop on your bike, and be a part of an environmentally friendly and active Canada Day! Kamloops Interior Summer School of Music(KISSM) is pleased to offer the 3rd Annual Pedal Parking at Canada Day. The KISSM Bike Pedal Parking will be located at the west side of Riverside Park in the Tennis Courts. Between 8:00 am and 7:00 pm, bring your own lock, and KISSM will supervise your bicycle for the day. (All bikes must be picked up by 7:00 pm)
