Notice of Public Meeting - Transit Affordability Program

Event date: Wednesday, March 30, 2016, from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Location: Peterborough Public Library Auditorium - 345 Aylmer St. North

The Project

The City of Peterborough is looking at ways to make transit more affordable for low income residents in our community. In the Peterborough Area approximately 13% of the population resides in a low income household based on 2010 Statistics Canada data.

A number of communities have Transit Affordability Programs in place and the 2012 Transit Operations Review recommended that Peterborough adopt a similar program.

In September 2015, a survey of residents was completed to collect information from transit riders and other city residents to help staff design the program.

The purpose of this open house is to provide area residents and transit riders an opportunity to review options for the program design, share their comments and discuss the project with City staff before final recommendations are presented to City Council.

Public Consultation

Public comments are encouraged. A Public Open House (POH) will is scheduled for:

Date: Wednesday, March 30, 2016
Time: 2:00pm to 8:00pm
Location: Peterborough Public Library Auditorium, 345 Aylmer St. North, Peterborough, Ontario

Comments

Any comments received pertaining to the project will be collected under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and, with the exception of personal information, will become part of the public record.

Copies of display material and comments forms will be provided on this website after the meeting has concluded.
