Conversation about extended transit hours heads back to city council

The discussion about extending transit hours will be heading back to Grande Prairie City Council.

A proposal was brought forward during the March 14th Public and Protective Services Committee meeting, which would see three buses and one accessible bus providing on-demand service till 11:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday and three buses providing service till 8:00 p.m. on Sundays. Currently, on-demand service runs until 8:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday and until 5:00 p.m. on Sundays.

According to the proposal presented to committee, a recent survey of on-demand users shows 78 per cent would like to see extended hours. Over the last three years, Grande Prairie transit has been piloting on-demand transit service in several neighbourhoods including Riverstone and Countryside South.

If City Council passes the proposal, the estimated annual cost will be $157,000.
