Cochrane is ready to move forward with transit planning.
The Town received word that GreenTRIP funding for a local transit service has been approved by Alberta Transportation.
“We are pleased that the application for $6 million in GreenTRIP funding has been approved,” says Mayor Ivan Brooker. “This allows us to move forward on this important community service.”
Administration will review the Transit Feasibility Study presented in January and return to Council this fall to discuss next steps for the delivery of a phased-in local transit service.
The Town originally received GreenTRIP funding approval in 2011 for local and regional transit, but amended the application to focus on local transit after the Calgary Regional Partnership began plans for regional service.
