Moving Forward Together - Metro Transit

As many of you are aware, Metro Transit is currently developing the new Five Year Service Plan.

As part of our first round of consultation for the plan, Metro Transit is asking some important questions to help us determine how the broader HRM community values transit. We’re asking participants to look beyond day to day operational issues, and think about what the goals of Metro Transit should be for the next five years.

I am emailing today to let you know that our interactive website is now live on the HRM Web Engagement Portal! You can find it by following this link here: http://halifax.ca/movingforwardtogether/ and clicking on the “public engagement portal”. This site allows participants many different ways to provide input toward the development of the plan, including a public forum, and an online survey.

Please take a few minutes to take a look at the site and pass the link along to any mailing lists you may have – we would like to hear from as many citizens as possible, whether or not they are transit users. You can also use our Twitter handle #moving4ward on your Twitter accounts if you’d like to spread the link that way.

Individuals who complete the survey before September 30th will all be entered in a draw to win a free iPad Mini, so spread the word!

In addition to the website, I would like to remind you that we have six public meetings coming up next week. The dates, times and locations are in the table below. Please note that ASL Interpreters will be available at Sessions 4 and 5.
