NS Sustainable Transportation Series:

It’s More Than Buses


The NS Sustainable Transportation Series was commissioned by the QUEST Nova Scotia Caucus with funding from the NS Dept of Energy. This report is based on the premise that a bold vision for the future of public transit in Halifax Regional Municipality needs to be championed by the citizens who rely on the transportation systems to meet their daily mobility needs, whether its travel to work, school, health care, shopping, recreation or entertainment. This report synthesizes the outcomes of three public sessions and shows the resulting products, which lead to a briefing before council outlining five key steps / projects needed to increase ridership and provide improved service to residents.
