Review of Cranbrook’s transit system begins next week

Cranbrook’s transit system is under the microscope.

City council has begun a review of its bus services with the guidance of BC Transit.

The goal is to maximize the level of service it provides for its investment, hoping to reduce its $554,486 annual budget over two or three years.

At a Monday, November 19 meeting, council said they have observed buses with few passengers and wish to examine whether the transit system can be changed so that ridership is more consistent.

Between November 2012 and June 2013, BC Transit will lead the city through the review.

The process will include public surveys on buses and online, public consultation at workshops and council and staff input on a proposed service review.

Look for more on the transit review in coming issues.
