Niagara Regional Council votes in favour of consolidated transit

At its Nov. 25 meeting, Niagara Regional Council voted in favour of combining all of Niagara’s existing services into one single, integrated transit commission serving all of Niagara.

Regional Council’s vote is a critical first stage in the triple majority process needed to transfer responsibility for public transit to the Region. Starting the week of Dec. 6, all of Niagara’s 12 local municipalities will also vote on the proposal. To move forward, a majority of those councils, representing a majority of Niagara electors, must vote in favour of the plan.

Be sure to keep checking with your local municipal council to see when the proposal will be up for debate.
