WHAT: It’s More Than Buses – Mobilize Public Support
WHEN: Wednesday, September 7 – 6:00pm
WHERE: Halifax World Trade and Convention Centre

The third and final It’s More Than Buses session will focus on mobilizing public support to implement the ideas developed by participants at the previous two sessions. We will also review our high-frequency transit network concept for HRM, a synthesis of the ideas mapped out by participants at session 2.

Guest speaker Paul Bedford, former Chief Planner for the City of Toronto, will open session 3 with a presentation on “Why Transit Matters.” At 7:30 pm, the session will conclude across the street in Grand Parade as we reveal an interactive public art installation.

It’s More Than Buses is based on the premise that a clear direction for the future of the municipality’s public transit system needs to be championed by the citizens who rely on Halifax’s transportation system to meet their daily mobility needs, whether it’s travel to work, school, health care, shopping, recreation or entertainment.
