Area residents can provide input into the Grande Prairie Regional Handibus Feasibility Study until next Wednesday.
The survey at cityofgp.com/handibusstudy enables respondents to comment on information Watt Consulting Group has heard to date, add further feedback on challenges and opportunities, and offer feedback on potential service levels and fares.
Participants can share information on their transportation requirements, use and frequency of current modes of transportation services, other means of getting around, locations for travel, and disability/mobility aid use.
Watt Consulting Group was hired by six area municipalities to determine the feasibility of a regional handibus service. The City of Grande Prairie, County of Grande Prairie, the Towns of Wembley, Beaverlodge and Sexsmith, and the Village of Hythe initiated the project to assess opportunities to improve mobility options primarily for seniors and disabled residents to attend to basic needs such as medical and dental appointments, shopping, and social outings.
Input collected through the survey and open houses held last week in Grande Prairie, Wembley, Beaverlodge, Hythe, Sexsmith, and Clairmont will be combined with other stakeholder feedback. This commentary will be used to refine final service proposals.
During the open houses, participants were able to share details about travel needs in their area and provide feedback on preliminary handibus service ideas developed by the consultants.
Watt Consulting Group will provide its recommendation to the project steering committee which will share findings with respective Councils in June. The project is funded by a $67,500 Alberta Community Partnership grant obtained by the Town of Wembley.
