Input wanted from Islanders on rural public transit

The province is asking for input from Islanders through an online survey to help create a vision for a rural public transit system in PEI.

The survey is available in English and French at Rural Public Transit system for Prince Edward Island until June 21, 2021 and all responses are confidential.

 “We encourage all Islanders to take this short online survey to help provide direction and shape our decision-making as we plan to launch a rural public transit system pilot this fall. We want to design a rural transit system in a way that will meet the needs of the people who will be using it.”

- Transportation and Infrastructure Minister James Aylward

The survey will help provide a clearer picture of why people would choose rural transit, what type of system they would prefer, frequency of trips, appropriate fees and features that are important to them.

For Islanders living in rural areas, improving the way people get to and from work, to medical appointments, entertainment venues and various destinations, presents unique challenges that require unique solutions. 

“Having public transport in both urban and rural areas is better for the environment and provides people with greater access to the services they need in an affordable, safe and flexible way,” Minister Aylward said.
