Posted on Tuesday November 05, 2019

WHITBY, ON – Durham Region Transit (DRT) will be hosting eight drop-in events throughout Brock, Scugog and Uxbridge Townships, and the Municipality of Clarington, as part of its Rural Transit Review. Residents are invited to provide comments and suggestions online by completing the survey at durhamregiontransit.com/ruraltransit, or in person at an upcoming drop-in.

“This initiative seeks to create value for residents as part of DRT’s ongoing efforts to increase mobility options in all areas of the Region,” says Christopher Norris, Customer Experience Manager. “We need valuable feedback to help shape the future of transit in rural Durham, and provide the service residents want and need, to get them where they have to go safely and reliably.”
