RDN wants your opinion on transit system

How can transit serve Oceanside residents over the next 10 to 25 years?

How can transit serve Oceanside residents over the next 10 to 25 years?

That’s the question on the table as the Regional District of Nanaimo and BC Transit team up to invite the public to get on board with the RDN’s 25-year Transit Future Plan.

From October 14 to 20, the BC Transit Future Bus visited locations throughout the RDN to connect with community members about area-specific transit needs, priorities and concerns.

“The RDN Transit Future Plan is essential to ensure the transit system meets the needs of RDN communities over the next five, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years,” said RDN Chairperson Joe Stanhope. “Sustainable transportation will assist in reducing transportation-related emissions and improving the overall quality of life in the region.”

The Transit Future Plan envisions the ideal RDN transit network 25 years from now, and describes what services, infrastructure and investments are needed to get there.

The plan will be designed to support local community goals and objectives, such as strengthening the link between transportation and land use in order to support sustainable growth.

“In order for BC Transit to succeed for decades to come, we must listen to what our customers want and need,” said BC Transit Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer Michael Kohl.
