Here’s How Milton Residents Can Have Their Say in the Transit System
If you've been waiting for the opportunity to have your say in Milton's current transit system you'll be happy to know that the wait is over.
Here's how Milton residents can have their say in the transit system.
Residents are invited by Milton Transit, in partnership with WSP, to provide input for the 2019-2023 Milton Transit Service Review and Master Plan Update.
This plan, according to a recent press release, will analyze and recommend service improvements, as well as introduce new innovative services, and implement advanced technologies that will support the growth of Milton's Transit service.
In-person community engagement will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 5.
A "hop-on, hop-off" information bus-mobile will be on location from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. at the Milton GO Station on Drew Centre.
In the evening, a drop-in Community Engagement Session will be taking place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Milton Sports Centre, 605 Santa Maria Blvd.
At the Centre, there will be a presentation which is set to start at 7 p.m. Anyone who is using the transit system to the session can reach the Sports Centre via Routes 2, 7, 8 and 10.
Online feedback is now available on the town's new online community engagement platform,
Let's Talk Milton: https://www.letstalkmilton.ca/TransitMasterPlan.
When providing feedback, residents can also partake in an initial online survey.
Previous feedback from residents has shown to be a huge help when it comes to improving the transit system.
"Last year, residents asked Milton Transit for better access to new growth areas, which we achieved this fall," Mayor Gord Krantz in a recent press release.
"I encourage our community members to keep talking about what they would like to see for Milton Transit service over the next five years."
There will be more community engagement opportunities in 2019 when draft recommendations are complete.
The draft Master Plan will be presented to council later in 2019.
