Public Consultation Principles
Public opinion makes our transportation system stronger. We understand that good planning involves the community, and that better decisions are made when many perspectives are considered. We want your help to shape plans for delivering an expanded rapid transit service that meets the needs of the community and current and future transit riders.
Your input to this important study will help shape plans for our expanding regional transit system. Help build the future of your community by taking part in all engagement activities, including attending the first round of Public Meetings (April, 2018) and subscribing to the project mailing list to receive Project updates. Together, we can build the transit network we need.
