Council to hear June 18 if new system will replace T3 bus service
Nancy Riley is offering to help Cornwall residents who depend on transit get to a meeting next week about the future of the bus service.
At its monthly meeting on June 18, Cornwall council is expected to hear of an alternative system to keep it in the regional public transit grid.
Riley is asking residents to show up in force at the meeting to support the need for transit. She is offering to arrange a ride to and from the meeting for those that need it.
The number to call is 213-1270 to leave a message and from there some arrangement can be worked out, she said.
"It's crucial that we show the town council that we do really need a bus," said Riley.
People depend on transit "either because they don't' have transportation or are somewhat disabled and they can't drive," said Riley.
"I have a bad visual impairment and I don't have a licence either," said Riley. "I know there are a lot of other people that go on the bus that have modest income, that only have one car, or something."
Cornwall council voted last January to pull out of the T3 Transit system, which required six months notice so comes into effect the end of this month.
