Major investment for transit in Stratford

It’s a major investment in transit in Stratford.

Dignitaries including Stratford Mayor Dan Mathieson, Perth-Wellington MPP Randy Pettapiece and Minister of Infrastructure and Communities Catherine McKenna gathered at the Stratford Transit Garage to announce approximately $4-million in funding for ten public infrastructure projects.

The money, $1-million from the city, $1.4-million from the province and $1.6-million from Ottawa, will go to five new conventional buses and two new mobility buses, 8 new accessible shelters, and new bus routes on Sundays that will use “on-demand” software.

McKenna says transit is vital to those who live in Stratford.

Federally, the funding is coming from the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Plan.
