Grand River Transit is Proposing Removing Buses From Kingswood Drive !!

Their 2017-2021 Business Plan would have the buses off Kingswood in 2018, when the ION LRT starts up. The nearest buses would run on Strasburg, Ottawa & Block Line, making the walk to the bus stop longer for many people. Other factors are the needs of seniors and disabled, walking a longer distance in the dark, and trying to cross the arterial streets, especially Strasburg.

Details on the business plan are at the link below. It includes further links to the full report, to maps for the proposed system in 2018 and 2021 and to the page where you can provide your feedback to GRT by October 21st.

Should the Alpine Community Neighbourhood Association get involved in a formal campaign of publicizing and perhaps protesting this idea?  Email us at either of the addresses down the right hand side of this page.
