Bus riders, have your say

BC Transit seeks input from Cranbrook users through survey next week.

BC Transit is looking for the opinions of Cranbrook bus riders.

The Crown agency is conducting ridership surveys next week. BC Transit customers will be asked to fill in a survey every time they ride the bus on December 5 and 6, 2012. Input from the survey will be included in a comprehensive service review of transit in Cranbrook that will be completed in the summer of 2013.

“The information you provide to us will guide the direction of transit to help meet the changing needs of your community,” said BC Transit Corporate Spokesperson Meribeth Burton in a press release.

“BC Transit encourages all Cranbrook residents to participate whether they are current customers or potential new ones.”

The agency reported that ridership grew by six per cent in Cranbrook in 2011/12 compared to the previous year. Burton said that BC Transit hopes to attract even more customers and improve on that statistic.

“By making transit more efficient and effective, people will leave their single-occupancy vehicles at home and make the smart, sustainable and affordable decision to ride a bus to work.”

Last year, BC Transit introduced route No. 4 Slaterville to service the Mission Hills region, and made other minor routing changes. “We’d like to hear how the changes are working for our customers.”

Riders can also share your opinions online  until January 31, 2013, at www.bctransit.com/regions/cra and click on the Transit Future link.
