Municipalities part of the County Connector bus pilot project are looking for feedback from both users and non-users of the service.
The online survey, available from September 9th-30th, will quiz those who partake on how they feel the pilot is going, and what changes may need to be made to provide better service for the area.
“It’s important that the project aligns with the needs of local residents,” says County Reeve Leanne Beaupre. “Now that we’ve been operational for several months, we want to hear from the public what is working well and what aspects of the service can be improved.”
Through the first six months of the pilot, officials say nearly 1,500 riders used the bus service, with adults making up around 83 per cent of users. Some big changes have already been implemented throughout the short lifespan of the bus service, including adding two extra stops in the City of Grande Prairie, while also taking away one in Beaverlodge.
The County Connector project is funded by the provincial government, under the Rural Transportation Pilot Program umbrella.
