The project includes:

  • A review of transit service needs and requirements and development of service improvement options to best meet the mobility needs of residents and visitors of the City;
  • A review of current transit policies and procedures; and
  • The development of an Action Plan to guide the implementation of transit service improvements over the next 5 to 10+ year period.
