Kelowna, BC is a beautiful city with 144,000 residents located in the sunny Okanagan Valley, approximately 400km drive from Vancouver, BC.

Holiday tourists flock to Kelowna during summer to swim in Okanagan Lake, visit world-class wineries, and enjoy some of the best weather in British Columbia, Canada.

In winter, international travelers head to the ski hills to experience fresh powder days, mountain vistas, and fine dining at apres ski lodges.

If you don’t have the luxury of using your own car as your main mode of transportation, you can still navigate Kelowna & West Kelowna using a variety of public and private transport options.

This article shows you how to get around Kelowna via walking paths, cycling routes, public busses, taxi companies, e-Scooter rentals, ride shares, and car rental agencies.

You’ll dodge the high gas prices and be a little more eco-friendly on your journey.
