The Province has agreed to help fund new transit projects, and, pending a Federal government decision, could help expand service in Huntsville.
If approved by the feds, Ontario would contribute $122,487 towards the estimated $367,500 cost of the project.
Huntsville’s Ridership Growth Plan is intended to expand the service and cut the travel time in order to make it practical for people to use transit to get to and from work.
“Our transit Ridership Growth Plan in Huntsville is about making our community more accessible for all citizens,” says Mayor Scott Aitchison. “These changes will improve the efficiency and frequency of our system while expanding the service area. The support of the Province of Ontario for this project is great news for our environment, our community and accessibility."
This is one of 134 transit projects outside of the GTHA that have been nominated by the province.
The projects are now with the federal government for final funding decisions.
