Alternative Approval Process

Okanagan Rail Corridor

The municipalities of Lake Country, Coldstream, Vernon and Kelowna, as well as the regional districts of Central Okanagan and North Okanagan, have jointly identified the value the rail line could have as a continuous multi-modal transportation corridor connecting all the communities.

A collective vision sees substantial benefits now and into the future for the Okanagan’s citizens.

The Okanagan Rail Corridor is a transportation route that economically unified communities from Coldstream to Kelowna’s industrial downtown for nearly 100 years.

Maintaining this historic ribbon of land for continued public use as a multi-modal transportation corridor will continue this economic tradition in a sustainable way through improved adoption of active transportation, reduced motor vehicle traffic congestion, and reserves the potential for innovative transit opportunities to serve the entire region in the future.
