Badawey wants regional transit system

Niagara This Week

For Port Colborne mayor Vance Badawey it’s time to link up the Region’s transit permanently.

Last Thursday at Regional council Badawey put forth a notice of motion to bring transit under one roof, creating a single regional transit system. Currently Niagara has three larger transit providers, St. Catharines, Welland and Niagara Falls, and three feeder systems, Port Colborne, Fort Erie and Niagara-on-the-Lake. Last September a regional transit pilot project and Badawey hopes to make that permanent.

“I put forward a notice of motion that I expect will expedite a formalized regional transit system,” he told Port Colborne council in his mayor’s report Monday night.

The notice of motion calls for the continuation of the regional transit pilot while the Region’s transportation committee works to implement a permanent regional system.

Badawey said it’s important to include all the current providers, as well as the private sector, in discussions about the new system.

He said he expects a recommendation to come back to Public Works and Regional council by next spring.
