Huron, Lambton, Middlesex Transit Survey In The Works

Regional | by Peter Jackson  

Survey will ask about route options for potential transit system serving three counties.

The Huron Shores Transit Steering Committee wants to get your ideas and suggestions for a proposed rural transit system that would serve parts of Lambton, Huron and Middlesex Counties.

Huron Shores Transit Steering Committee member Glen Baillie says the group hopes to launch an on-line survey during the Christmas holiday period.

Input would be sought through the end of January.

He says hard copies also will be distributed as widely as possible.

Baillie notes that the questionnaire would be complex, because of the widely differing local needs of potential transit users in each of the three Counties.

He also mentions that some passengers would need daily service to London, Sarnia and destinations in Huron County.

Baillie adds it all comes down to what will work for survey respondents, and what won't work.

To make the survey experience more appealing, Baillie says prizes including grocery store gift certificates will be offered.

The survey comes after a recent successful meeting between steering committee members and Ministry of Transportation representatives in Parkhill.

The committee hopes to gain funding for a pilot project that would result in a rural transit service, similar to a system already up and running in Norfolk County.
