YRT hosts public information centres on 2014 service plans



Every year, York Region Transit hosts public information centres to hear what you have to say. Your feedback helps YRT and Viva staff complete their annual review of transit services, which, in turn helps them build better transit in York Region.

These events give you the opportunity to better understand YRT and Viva operations and proposed plans for the coming year. You can also ask questions and discuss proposed plans directly with YRT/Viva staff.

YRT and Viva staff want to hear what you have to say to answer these questions:

  • Do the proposed plans meet your needs?
  • Is the current level of service adequate?
  • What improvements would you suggest?

Drop by any of the events to offer your input on the 2014 YRT/Viva Annual Service Plan. Your feedback will help staff shape the future of public transit in York Region. And, you could win a PRESTO fare card, just by attending. At each event, you can enter your name for a chance to win a $10 pre-loaded PRESTO card.
