Pontiac residents can look forward to greater opportunities for public transport in the region, as Transcollines plans for more day trips and greater affordability within the next few years.
The public transportation service has been on tour within the areas it serves, breaking down the company’s strategic plan for 2019-23, while accepting feedback on the changes to come.
Campbell’s Bay was the first stop in the tour, meeting residents on Oct. 23 at the town’s recreation association hall. The bilingual presentation was led by Benoit Legros, who is responsible for planning and development for Transcollines.
Legros explained that in the Pontiac, the major concerns from customers stem from a lack of constant service along the transit line. Currently, there is only one trip to Ottawa and one trip back, but revised plans would see more trips, plus more trips specifically within the MRC.
