KAWARTHA LAKES: Lindsay Transit has planned a number of accessibility and capital improvements, as a result of a grant from the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund from the federal government.
The latest project involves the installation of 10 new cement pads at Lindsay Transit stops to improve accessibility.
“The pads provide a stable surface that makes waiting at transit stops and getting on the bus safer and easier for residents,” explained Todd Bryant, Manager of Fleet and Transit. “Municipalities have until 2025 to make transit services completely accessible. Lindsay Transit is now 99% accessible, and we are committed to becoming 100% accessible far ahead of schedule.”
Future Lindsay Transit services will be outlined in a Master Transit Plan, due to be completed early in 2018. A report about the Master Transit Plan will be presented to Council in February 2018.
The plan involved public consultation over the summer and fall, through surveys and public meetings, which received a large amount of participation. Information, from the public consultation process, will be used to determine the next steps for Lindsay Transit.
Residents are invited to continue to provide their input into development of the Master Transit Plan, by calling 647-268-9301. More information about Lindsay Transit services is available online, at kawarthalakes.ca/LindsayTransit.
