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. Right now, all of Niagara’s 12 local municipalities are voting on the proposal. To move forward, a majority of those councils, representing a majority of Niagara electors, must vote in favour of the plan.

If you would like to your make views  for a consolidated transit system for all of Niagara heard, consider making a delegation or writing a letter to your local municipal council.
