Transit input sought by city

City residents who want to help write the script on future transit service can attend a meeting on Thursday.

City residents who want to help write the script on future transit service can attend a meeting on Thursday.

Michael Roschlau of the Canadian Urban Transit Association will be in Red Deer to help present a picture of what transit system of the future could look like. The event starts at 5 p.m. at City Centre Stage at 4922 49th St.

The association brings ideas from across the country that could work in Red Deer. Those who attend can offer their ideas about how transit can be improved.

Roschlau is president and chief executive officer of the transit association, which represents the public transit community across Canada. Roschlau holds a doctorate in transport geography from the Australian National University. He has worked directly with staff and senior management at more than 150 transport agencies around the world.

Transit was one of the top priorities that Red Deer people identified in the city’s Integrated Movement Study.

City of Red Deer strategist Jeremy Bouw said the city wants to discover what is important to city residents with regard to transit. “We want to know what transit could look like in the future, how it could move people around the city and how it can be unique to Red Deer,” Bouw said.

A standing reception and light refreshments will follow the speaking event.
