Accessibility

We value all members of our diverse community and work to meet the needs of everyone. We are committed to removing barriers that might keep you, or someone close to you, from enjoying all of the great things Kamloops has to offer. 

Getting Around Town

Accessible Public Transit 

  • Kamloops transit - bus schedules, fares, transit exchanges, and more
  • handyDART - door-to-door service with assistance - 250-376-7525
  • ProPASS - a one-year bus pass purchased through your employer

Accessible Parking - Parking Permits 

  • Accessible Parking Permits - temporary and permanent accessible parking permits are available through People In Motion

Pedestrian Accessibility - Accessible Street and Sidewalks

  • Accessible pedestrian signals (APS) - helping blind, low-vision, or deaf-blind pedestrians cross streets safely with the aid of audio and vibrating signals at signalized intersections. The City installed 18 accessible pedestrian signals in 2017 and will install approximately 32 more by the end of 2018. Locations are chosen in consultation with various agencies, including the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), the White Cane Club, and the Mayor's Advisory Committee for Persons with Disabilities.
  • Curb cuts - many existing curb ramps in Kamloops have been installed upon request. If there is a sidewalk you think needs a curb ramp, let the City know. Our engineers prioritize curb cut requests to areas with a high level of pedestrian traffic, including:
    • collector and arterial roads
    • bus routes
    • schools
    • community centres
    • shopping areas
