Transit Route Changes - Update

Post Date:06/28/2022 12:25 PM

Whitehorse – At last night’s Regular Council Meeting, members of Council voted in favour of delaying the implementation of the Modernized Transit Route Plan.

The implementation of the new schedule was set to take effect on July 1, but will be postponed to allow City staff to review and analyze the input received from the public, and recommend potential improvements to better serve Transit ridership.

“Our aim is to increase ridership and provide a reliable bus service that is cost neutral. One that efficiently connects residents to their places of work, play and daily errands. We want to make it easier to choose Transit to travel throughout the city,” said Mayor Laura Cabott. “Council heard from residents and business owners, and recognize there is more work to do on our Modernized Transit Route Plan to achieve that goal.”

The improvement recommendations, and estimated cost for implementation, will be presented to Council for consideration in December 2022.
