Just three months after launching the redesigned transit route plan, the City of Grande Prairie has announced amendments to routes and services starting later this month.
Officials say based on feedback from riders, as well as transit ridership trends, changes will include the introduction of fixed routes in certain neighbourhoods, and the introduction of on-demand travel in one community.
In Countryside South, Route 9 buses will now take the place of the on-demand zone, while on-demand bus services will be available in Riverstone. The city says a minor route adjustment will also come into effect on Route 6, which will enable a fixed route service to Crystal Ridge from the Prairie Mall
Officials say all routes will also be moving from 30 to 40 minutes per trip, which will include a 5-minute recovery on each trip to assist in keeping the system on time, keeping variables like construction and inclement weather in mind.
