Public Consultation on Community Bus Route Options

Event date: Friday, January 26, 2018, at 4:30 PM

Starting in March 2018, Peterborough Transit will have a Community Bus Route serving malls, grocery stores, seniors’ homes, medical clinics and the hospital. The Community Bus will be available to all residents and will provide an additional transit option for people that normally use the Handi-Van or find using the regular bus challenging. The service will use a mini bus that has no stairs and has seats for 10 to 15 passengers, plus four spots for wheelchairs. The service will operate Monday through Sunday from 9:20 am to 5:20 pm. The route frequency will be hourly.

Through public consultation in the summer of 2017, transit users indicated many places that they would like to go on the Community Bus. Two potential routes have been created using this community feedback. Now, Peterborough Transit is soliciting input on which route option future users of the community bus prefer.

Details about the community bus route options and the survey are found on the City website and at the Transit Terminal. In addition, transit staff will be at the Community Counter of Lansdowne Place on Thursday, January 18 to answer questions about the Community Bus and copies of the survey will be there as well.

The on-line version of the survey can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ptbocommunitybus

To allow enough time to tabulate the survey results prior to the service beginning, all surveys should be submitted by Friday, January 26. Once the route has been finalized, the map and schedule for the Community Bus service will be posted on the Peterborough Transit pages of the City website.
