Here’s what Barrie’s new transit system could look like:
The routes are not actually mapped onto streets, they are just conceptual. But the idea is that there would be multiple hubs around the city, served by local routes (dashed lines), with express service on major roads every 15 minutes or better, between the hubs (thicker solid lines). No more having to go downtown to get where you need to go.
This is one idea, there are others; we want to hear from you. For example, the map above doesn’t show express service connecting the south end hubs – I think we need this (basically a Mapleview bus).
Overhauling the transit system has been a priority since I was elected – please come tell us what you think – Downtown Transit Terminal – 4:00pm to 7:00pm, Thursday April 28.
