Thirteen Community Transit Groups Receive Provincial Funding

first_imgThirteen communities will receive provincial funding to help improve public transit services in their areas. Through the Nova Scotia Transit Research Incentive Program, $340,000 will be invested in projects that include software upgrades and feasibility studies for transit in rural and unserviced urban areas. “We know how important public transit is to communities,” said Ramona Jennex, Minister of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations. “This funding will contribute to a healthier environment for today and a more sustainable tomorrow.” “We would like to thank the provincial government for their commitment to provide safe and accessible transportation to the residents of Nova Scotia,” said Malcolm Beaton, general manager of Strait Area Transit. The program provides up to 75 per cent of eligible costs, to a maximum grant of $50,000, for approved projects. Nova Scotia Transit Research Incentive Program is fully committed this fiscal year.
