A Faulder resident asks how we could improve access to public transportation.

At the forum, a Faulder local just recently undergone knee surgery and found getting to Summerland for necessities like groceries a significant challenge.


I've been doing some digging and we have some pretty great models of success to consider.

And clearly, we are not alone in feeling that there is a service gap around access to transportation and rural areas https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/rural-ride-expansion-affordable-transportation-1.4727972


I know for certain that if we could get a group around the table, we could come up with some innovative solutions that possible could be supported by already existing not-for-profit services.


Curious to look into this further :)
