ROAM Transit Funding - August 8, 2017
Today I announced nearly $1 million for enhancements to ROAM Transit for shelters and bus refurbishment as part of the GreenTRIP program on behalf of Minister Brian Mason.
Banff Mayor Karen Sorensen's, Canmore Mayor John Borrowman's, and the Bow Valley Transit Commission's visionary leadership has helped improve the experience for residents and visitors alike. Traffic congestion has been reduced, as well as greenhouse gas emissions.
This funding demonstrates our government’s commitment to provide Albertans with safe, affordable and environmentally sustainable public transportation options. As a world-class tourism destination, it’s important that the Bow Valley has an efficient and accessible public transit system to help residents and visitors get around and connect to other communities.
