‘Most substantial investment ever’ will change face of Barrie Transit
A huge investment from the province will see millions of dollars pumped into Barrie’s transit system and a reimagined bus and train stop for riders.
The Ontario government has approved more than $13 million for three local projects.
Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte MPP Doug Downey made the announcement Thursday morning at the Barrie Transit garage on Welham Road.
Downey says the money will go a long way in helping the influx of people expected to move into all areas of the city in the coming years.
Bus route dispute: Rider upset with recent Barrie Transit changes
Stormy Barker risks losing her job because of a bus route change.
The Barrie resident has worked at SBS Drivetec, a small manufacturing plant located on King Street, for about 10 months. SBS operates two shifts between 6 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. each day.
Barker works the early shift and had caught a Barrie Transit bus at 5:05 a.m. each day; through a transfer, she’d arrive at a Route 8B stop near the plant with enough time to get to work a few minutes early.
But changes to the transit schedule that were implemented in late August mean her first bus arrives later, the transfer window is wider and the second bus picks her up at 5:55 a.m. Now, she’s late every day.
