The town offered an online survey from October 24th through November 9th of 2018, of which over 200 residents participated in. They also reached over 200 residents through online engagement sessions and community events, including graffiti boards at various Okotoks locations.
Key points addressed were the service area, fares, schedule and service hours.
Residents indicated preferences for smaller format transit vehicles, as well as an on-demand system set-up.
A draft plan is in progress, to be presented to Town Council in February. If the plan is approved, Okotoks residents can expect to see a functioning local transit system in the works later in the year.
