OC Transpo Bus Route Changes and You
It has been three weeks since changes to 21 bus routes went into effect with the aim of saving the City $20 million dollars a year.
City Council and OC Transpo need to hear from you as to whether these changes have had a positive or negative impact on your access to bus services. Let your Councillor, the Transit Commission and OC Transpo know the positive or negative impact the route changes have on you and your community. You may take this opportunity to thank them for listening to the community on reinstating No. 106 and ask that they continue to listen to the community. We need a bus system that encourages all of us to take the bus and access services.
