The ongoing planning for the future of Oakville Transit continues in April with the service sharing with the community what it’s learned.

Initial public consultation began in November 2023, focusing on understanding overall themes impacting transit service for the community, and this next step allows continuing public input for the development of its five-year plan.

“Building on the insights from the initial consultation, town staff have been conducting ongoing research, engaging with stakeholders and aligning this effort with work underway on the town’s ongoing Transportation Master Plan study,” said a spokesperson.

Town staff will be sharing the work completed to date that will help form the foundation of Oakville Transit’s five-year Business Plan, including:

  • What is driving the need for a new business plan
  • The framework, components and benefits of the plan
  • How staff are building a transit service network to meet the needs of all customers to get to school, work and leisure activities
  • A new, more direct route network, including new on-demand and base routes in growing communities
