Have your say about public transportation in Oakville!

Take Oakville Transit’s online survey by November 21.

As part of its current service review, Oakville Transit has launched a new online survey to gather feedback and suggestions from residents and workers in Oakville who do not use public transit. The survey will be available until Friday, November 21 at midnight.

The transit services review aims to identify operational efficiencies and service improvements that could be implemented over the next five years.

“The survey feedback we receive as part of the service review will be used to enhance our public transportation system, making it even more efficient and easy to access for riders and potential riders alike,” said Mayor Rob Burton.

The review is being undertaken by transportation consulting firm Parsons Brinckerhoff and includes input from transit customers, community leaders, major employers and the general public. The final report will provide recommendations for the operation of Oakville Transit’s fixed route, flexible and accessible transportation services.

“Our transit services review will help define how we design and deliver transit services in Oakville for the next five years,” said Barry Cole, director of Oakville Transit. “We’ve heard from our riders; now we need input from non-riders to learn where we can improve.”

There are two ways to provide feedback and suggestions before the November 21 deadline. Take the online survey or send comments and ideas to transitreview@oakville.ca.
