Lindsay Transit gets more accessible

By Lindsay Advocate

Lindsay Transit is getting even more accessible.

It 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,” says Todd Bryant, manager of fleet and transit.

“Municipalities have until 2025 to make transit services completely accessible. Lindsay Transit is now 99 per cent accessible and we are committed to becoming 100 per cent 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 plan will be presented to council in February of next year.

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 plan by calling 647-268-9301. More information about Lindsay Transit services is available online here.
