Bus Rapid Transit is moving forward in London and council is looking for your input.
This summer there will be multiple opportunities for public consultation on the BRT project. We want your input. On June 21 there will be 2 open house drop-in sessions 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and 5 – 8 p.m. at London’s Central Library located at 251 Dundas St.
If you are unable to make one of the open houses there will be 10 ‘Transit Tuesday’ drop-in sessions at 3 – 7 p.m. from July 10 – September 11 located at the Rapid Transit Office, on the second floor of the Central Library.
You can check out this short video for more information on how to get involved and have your voice heard. An interactive map has also been created that includes an area where you can provide feedback.
The Children’s Festival returns to London this weekend. The festival includes free activities for the whole family. You can also buy a ride all day bracelet for $20; parents ride for free with a child under 13 with the bracelet.
It’s going to be a gorgeous weekend so even if you don’t have little ones, make sure you get outside and check out what’s happening in our city. For more information on events in London click here.
