There's still time for anyone in Greater Sudbury who wants to give their thoughts on the biggest reforms of Greater Sudbury's transit system in the city's short history.

Residents can review proposed new routes and schedules before the new transit network officially launches Aug. 26.

A survey that will be used to fine-tune transit routes and schedules where possible is available online until end of day on April 23 at overtoyou.greatersudbury.ca, where residents can also find details about the changes. A paper survey can be filled out at any public library, citizen service centre and at the Downtown Transit Centre until April 23. 

City council approved the the reform plan in February, and in the past month, Greater Sudbury has hosted more than 20 open houses and meetings to present new routes and schedules for public feedback.

In a news release, the city said changes to transit services include:

  • Higher frequency and more reliable service on routes serving the highest ridership destinations. 
  • Revised schedules so that service can operate on time with connections at mobility hubs throughout the city. 
  • Better Sunday service and earlier weekday service. 
  • Easier to understand schedules and route information. 
  • Options for continuous enhancements and improvements over the next 10 years. 

The Greater Sudbury Transit Action Plan: Better Routes. Better Schedules. Better Service is made possible by the Canada-Ontario Public Transit Infrastructure Fund.
