Would you use the bus system more if it was cheaper? How do you feel about car sharing? Is cycling an option?
These are some of the questions the City of Kamloops is asking its citizens as it begins to move on the ideas in the new Transportation Master Plan adopted last year. Part of that plan is to make walking, cycling and transit more convenient for people. To find out what that means, the city is holding an open house and surveying people online.
The open house is scheduled for Jan. 15. It's on from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Savona Room in the Sandman Hotel, at 225 Lorne St. Anyone unable to attend can check out the city's Let's Talk website if they want to learn more and share their thoughts. Residents have until Jan. 27 to submit feedback.
Input will go toward the Downtown Transportation Choices Strategy. It will focus on making individuals less reliant on private vehicles, hence the curiosity about car share programs, cycling and the city's bus system.
