“This is a great opportunity to hear from residents who use the service on what they like and would improve and also from non-users, to provide input on why they don’t use the service and what we could change to make them future users,” states Blackfalds Economic Development Officer, Jen Hartigh.  

“City Council has committed to reviewing how well public transportation is meeting demand and cost requirements,” said Lacombe’s Community Economic Development Manager Guy Lapointe. “This survey is one way for the regional transit committee to identify potential options for service improvement that may help us to maximize usage.”
