Transit Action Plan

Transit Action Plan

The Greater Sudbury Transit Action Plan is a comprehensive review of the local public transit system with the goal of achieving better routes, schedules and overall service.

This first phase of the Greater Sudbury Transit Action Plan focused on gathering ideas and feedback from the community and included open houses, workshops and a formal survey.

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, 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.

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.

Resident ideas and responses will be used in developing recommendations to improve local public transit service for a second round of public consultation in October and November, 2017.

About This Project

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.

The project is made possible through the Canada-Ontario Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF).  The Government of Canada is cost-matching a municipal investment of $500,000 for the plan and resulting infrastructure improvements under the administration of the Ontario Ministry of Transportation.
