Over the next several months, region residents are invited to share their ideas and perspectives on a regional transit network.
The Grande Prairie Regional Public Transportation Study is a collaboration between the County of Grande Prairie, the City of Grande Prairie, and the towns of Wembley, Beaverlodge, and Sexsmith.
The study will explore combining the region’s existing various independent bus and shuttle transit routes into a single service that will be more efficient, reliable, and convenient.
“We want to know how a more robust network can improve inter-community connectivity and make transit accessible to everyone in the region,” says Kathleen Turner, Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) Director for the County of Grande Prairie.
In addition to seeking feedback from community members, the project team will be engaging with current transit service providers, local governments, and First Nations.
"We’ll be gathering input via surveys, in-person conversations, and online feedback,” adds Turner.
“It is important that we hear from as many people as possible, including what is already working well, and what can be improved.”
The project team, led by WATT Consulting Group, will start conversations with the public in the coming months.
