It’s your transit. Tell us where you want to go!
City Council is embarking on an exciting new plan for Calgary Transit. RouteAhead, a long-term strategy for public transit over the next 30 years, will focus on making transit safe, convenient, comfortable, and efficient.
Last May, the RouteAhead team started talking to Calgarians at community events and on the engagement bus, a travelling version of the Ward 7 Bow to Bluff storefront. Citizens were asked what they like, what they’d like to see improved, and what direction they think Calgary Transit should take in the future. Over 4,000 people met with the team on the bus and at these events!
The RouteAhead team is using the public feedback, as well the vision and goals set out in PlanIt Calgary, to draft a 30-year strategy. The plan will cover all aspects of public transit including where best to invest limited resources. In September, Council supported the guiding principles for the strategy as well as the evaluation criteria for rapid transit projects.
Now, the team is gearing up for its next phase of public engagement - giving Calgarians an opportunity to see what is being proposed, and asking them to weigh in and confirm that RouteAhead is on the right track. The final presentation to Council will be at the Transportation and Transit Committee on December 12. Stay tuned to www.routeahead.ca, follow the progress on Twitter (@routeahead) and look for the engagement bus in Ward 7.
I’m looking forward to seeing you on the RouteAhead bus!
