Niagara Region Transit seeks feedback on new accessible coach buses
On Wednesday, March 13, Niagara Region Transit parked a new accessible coach-style bus on Academy Street at the St. Catharines terminal, in order to collect community feedback on potential new bus purchases.
Residents who are able to tour the bus in person are welcome to leave their comments with Transportation Services staff who will be on hand. Residents who cannot visit the bus in person will have an opportunity to supply comments online.
These potential new buses come equipped with a low floor accessible side entrance and comfortable seating for 54 passengers. Operationally, these buses are built for longer routes with fewer stops and thus may be more durable and better suited for longer Regional routes. If residents believe this bus could improve the overall experience as a transit rider in Niagara, the Region would perform further research before purchasing these new models for the service.
"Niagara Region recently approved a special levy for Niagara Regional Transit enhancements to show our commitment to improving services for residents. In our efforts to enhance services, the Region is looking at alternative buses for the future of inter-municipal transit. This exercise allows us to try a different style of bus to test for better performance and gain valuable feedback from residents."
