(Wednesday, April 16, 2008) - In an article published in The Chronicle-Herald this morning, it was incorrectly stated that several HRM communities will be left without adequate bus or ferry service under a new five-year Metro Transit plan.
In fact, Regional Council yesterday approved the complete plan as recommended by staff. It includes such projects as increased Woodside ferry service and new MetroLink service for Clayton Park and Spryfield. Also, it calls for development of a new transit service plan that will prioritize new services for implementation, including Burnside and Bayers Lake shuttles.
Deputy Mayor Steve Adams said the only amendment Council made to the plan was to emphasize that a new proposed new $25 million transit satellite garage will be the #1 priority in the plan. The facility is necessary to accommodate any further increase in the current transit fleet.
