No date yet for when Hub Transit services may resume in Sioux Lookout.
The Municipality of Sioux Lookout assumed operations for the Sioux Lookout Hub Transit program on July 4.
The Municipality of Sioux Lookout and Hub Transit shared in a joint news release issued August 6, that, “As part of the transfer of Hub Transit to the Municipality of Sioux Lookout, we have discovered some critical changes [to operational requirements] that are required for the Municipality to be able to continue providing the service while meeting Provincial regulations.”
The Municipality provided an update on the status of the service in a recent press release.
“Over the last six weeks, we have been working diligently to ensure our operations are in full compliance with provincial guidelines, as well as reviewing data on the service’s delivery, with the aim of enhancing service provision to meet the evolving needs of the community,” explained Brian P. MacKinnon, Manager of Corporate Services and Municipal Clerk.
MacKinnon continued, “As we draw closer to being able to reinstate the transit service, we will be seeking community input in the form of a survey, the responses to which will help inform possible changes to operations to better meet the needs of the community.”
The survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HubTransitSurvey, or people may pick-up a hard copy at the Municipal Office during regular business hours. The survey will be open until October 12.
“The Municipality will continue to update the public regarding the Hub Transit service, including planned date of resumption of service, and any changes to routes or other operational matters in the coming weeks,” the Municipality shared.
The transportation program provides services throughout the Municipality of Sioux Lookout, including to and from the Airport and Hudson.
