Waverley Heights, Richmond West & Fairfield Park – My Comments On Bus Routes – Please Share Yours
RESIDENTS OF WAVERLEY HEIGHTS, RICHMOND WEST & FAIRFIELD PARK
TODAY Transit starts a series of ‘public engagements’ regarding the PROPOSED bus route changes to connect to the new SouthWest transitway opening in 2020. These public engagements will take place in a converted BUS – find the ‘Ideas in Motion Bus’ at a variety of locations THIS week and NEXT week – see complete list of locations: Bus Routes Are Changing In Southwest Winnipeg
SATURDAY the bus will be in Bridgwater Centre on Centre Street @ Northtown Road 2:00 – 4:00 PM
I have reviewed in detail and have spoken with transit staff on the proposed routes. Overall, I believe the proposed route changes will dramatically improve transit in Southwest Winnipeg. Buses will run on a much higher frequency in the neighbourhood and essentially ‘shuttle’ you to the main line – the Blue Line. Neighbourhood buses will not be late because they are only travelling in the neighbourhoods and not going downtown.
POTENTIAL CHALLENGE – WAVERLEY HEIGHTS / FAIRFIELD PARK
There is no Sunday service in the area I have highlighted in pink. I believe this is a challenge – it is over 500 meters for many residents to walk to route 676 or 672. What are your thoughts?
