The Thompson Local News


The city of Thompson will be adding a new transit bus and a new Handi-Van next year.

 

Almost $80,000.00 in provincial funding for transit projects in the city was announced at last week's city council meeting.

 

The city will be receiving $2,500.00 for transit signage, $5,000.00 for two bus shelters, $39,810.00 towards the purchase of a new bus and $31,250.00 towards the purchase of a new Handi-Van.

 

This provincial investment I sin addition to a $157,121.00 investment in the same projects by the federal government.  The city will be contributing almost $320,000.00 towards the projects.

 

Speaking on City Beat late last week, Councilor Colleen Smook said it's an important investment by the province.

 

She said that with our harsh winters, bus shelters in the city could use some much needed improvement.

 

She also added that the Handi-Van has been out of service for quite some time, so being able to purchase a new one will go a long way towards making the city more accessible.

 

Smook added that there will be a public meeting coming up on tomorrow for Thompsonites to get a look at the city's 2017 budget.
