The mayor of Nelson figures it’s time for a regional Transit Task Force.
Deb Kozak says the RDCK could spearhead improvements and ways to use BC Transit dollars more effectively.
This would be to ensure people in rural areas have access to health care, their work and school.
Kozak wants the task force in light of a three-year BC Transit funding freeze for any further service expansion.
She says the region should be the masters of their own destiny and come up with workable rural solutions to present to BC Transit rather than wait for the urban-centric agency to come to us.
