Rural Transit Task Force launches online survey
February 23, 2015 - The City’s newly-created Rural Transit Task Force is launching an online survey to get feedback from residents and business owners in the City on how they feel about rural transit and whether they would be in favour of paying for the service on their municipal tax bills.
“As part of the mandate of the task force we need to look at financially viable and sustainable options to provide the service or determine whether rural transit is even feasible in Kawartha Lakes at this time,” explained Mayor Andy Letham.
To date, the rural transit pilot project in Kawartha Lakes has been completely supported through Provincial Gas Tax revenues and reserves. That model will not continue to be viable. Any new rural transit system will require municipal tax support and through this survey the task force hopes to gain information about residents’ willingness to pay, through their municipal taxes, for a rural transit system.
