Alternative Transit for Communities Losing Service in the Proposed Bus Network Redesign
Follow-up surveys for the June workshops have closed. Community input gathered during these workshops and in the survey will be used by ETS to help adapt and adjust alternative transit options. It will be included in ETS' final report in November 2019 and used by City Council to help them in their decision-making about alternative transit.
Communities proposed to receive alternative transit service include:
- Avonmore, Cloverdale, Kenilworth and King Edward Park, as well as Gainer and Girard Industrial
- Brookside, Falconer Heights and Henderson Estates
- Aspen Gardens, Grandview Heights and Lansdowne
- Breckenridge Greens, Cameron Heights, Potter Greens, Rio Terrace, Wedgewood Heights and Westridge
- Lauderdale and Montrose
Alternative Transit for Newer Communities
If you were unable to attend recent public engagement workshops, a survey will be available here in late September.
ETS is exploring alternative transit service options in communities that do not have service today and your input is needed. Your feedback will be used to help City Council in its decision-making process about future transit options. If you live or work in any of the communities listed below, please join us to learn more about alternative transit and help us refine possible approaches for future service.
- Graydon Hill
- Hawks Ridge
- Hays Ridge
Options Being Considered
|On-demand van||Ride-hailing app|
|Taxi||Limited bus service|
For neighbourhoods that are losing service or will have excessive walking distances, ETS is committed to finding alternative transit solutions for them. In January 2019, City Council requested that ETS explore providing this type of service to neighbourhoods that do not currently have regular transit. The Council request includes reviewing community routes to better serve areas of the city with many seniors' housing complexes.
