City Announces Consultant to Conduct Transit Strategic Plan

The City of Fredericton has hired Stantec to prepare a Strategic Plan for Fredericton Transit. More details, along with plans for public consultation, will be announced in early 2018.

“We’re excited to explore opportunities to continue to improve our transit system,” said Councillor Henri Mallet, Chair of the City’s Transportation Committee. “With more and more citizens looking for alternate ways to commute to work, a review of our current services is well timed and has incredible potential to better serve our customers, and build a more efficient system for our community.”

The Strategic Plan will identify forward-thinking Transit system management strategies based on the Plan objectives which include:

  • Maximizing the efficiency of Fredericton Transit as a whole;
  • Assessing route performance and potential improvement options;
  • Investigating on-board technology to enhance service delivery;
  • Identifying future service requirements based on growth projections; and,
  • Evaluating current fare structure

The consultant will carry out research, review data, identify best practices, and gather community feedback, all of which will be compiled in a final draft report. The new Transit Strategic Plan will support the Community Goals identified in the Fredericton Growth Strategy.
