Transit Action Plan
Proposed new routes and services for Greater Sudbury Transit: Thank you for all your feedback!
Sincere thanks are extended to all those who attended open houses, completed a survey and provided other feedback in February 2018. Your thoughts on draft route concepts and other proposed transit system priorities have been very helpful.
The online survey is now closed. The project team is in the process of summarizing what we heard and will be making revisions to the final plan based on feedback received. Watch for further information here in the near future.
About the Plan and First Phase of Public Engagement
Greater Sudbury Transit provides safe, reliable and affordable transportation to more than 4 million passengers each year. The ultimate goal of the Transit Action Plan is to build this service even more.
During the first phase of the Transit Action Plan, residents were asked what they like about local public transit, what they would like to see improved and how they could be encouraged to use the service.
Between June 20 and 30, 2017 representatives of Greater Sudbury Transit hosted 16 open houses at busy retail and recreational locations across the city, as well as four workshops for stakeholders with a special interest in public transportation, to ask residents what they like about local public transit, what they would like to see improved and how they could be encouraged to use the service.
Residents who could not attend an open house had an opportunity to participate through a formal survey. Close to 1,800 surveys were completed online and on paper over a three -week period.
Project Structure and Goals
The City of Greater Sudbury has engaged Transit Consulting Network (TCN), a consortium of public transit specialists from across the country, to lead the study and to ensure that every resident who would like to have input into the action plan will have an opportunity to do so.
Project goals are:
- To conduct a comprehensive review and detailed analysis of the local public transit system, including all parts of the community and all modes of service (i.e. conventional bus, Handi-Transit, TransCab)
- To hear feedback from transit passengers, transit operators and staff, stakeholders and other residents
- To consider all opportunities to maximize transit efficiency and effectiveness
- To identify improvements to service, infrastructure and other supporting initiatives
- To build public awareness and support for Greater Sudbury Transit services.
The project is made possible through the Canada-Ontario Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF).
