Public Service Announcement
Public Consultation Session
Potential Public Transit Service
Information for the Public
Release Date: July 28, 2021


The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay and Dalhousie University will be hosting a Public Consultation Session on the potential of a Public Transit Service, the first of a series of consultations.


On August 5, 2021, from 5-7 pm, please join our virtual session for an interactive and lively conversation about what a transit service could and should look like in your community.


The main objective of this public consultation session is to receive community feedback on major design elements and important features and principles that should be prioritized in the transit system. What can you expect from the session?


Participants will be asked to begin by working on their own to prepare a list of key sites in the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay where a public transit service should frequent. In a series of small break-out groups, participants will then engage in a conversation on the following topics:


  • how transit could benefit themselves, their families, and the community at large
  • potential obstacles to the implementation of transit
  • what an ideal design and route for a transit network would look like
  • key design features such as vehicle options, technology, bus stops, etc.


All participants will then come back together for a closing roundtable, where a volunteer from each group will summarize and present the findings from their small group discussion.


The interns from Dalhousie University will analyze all information collected through the public consultation session and use the ideas generated when composing the transit feasibility study for the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay. To ensure your voice is heard, register today!
