Hi Clearview residents!
Can you help increase transit for Clearview by completing a super short survey by end of day December 2, 2019 and sharing it with your contacts in Clearview?

Please complete this survey and indicate that you would use an on-demand, door-to-door transit service if provided to Clearview. Our Clearview residents association, COCA, will be delegating to the Oakville Budget Committee on Tuesday Dec 3 to support a pilot of the new Ride-Hail transit program in our Ward. If approved, Ride-Hail would provide much more quick and convenient transit to Oakville and other destinations. Please complete the survey!  Oakville Transit has included the service in its budget proposal and our Councillor Janet Haslett-Theall is supporting it. Now we need your support as well!

Currently, to reach many destinations in our own Ward, we have to travel 45-60+ minutes by bus first out of Oakville to Clarkson GO and then take a bus back into Oakville, often including a walk of up to 20 minutes. A few examples: Wakehurst Crescent to Iroquois Ridge Rec Centre: 55 minutes (with a 14 minute walk). Wakehurst Crescent to Oakville Town Hall: 40-60 minutes (includes 17-19 minute walk). Wakehurst to Central Library: 45-67 minutes (with 8-20 minute walk). Even to Maple Grove plaza, Google Maps says takes 36 minutes, two buses and lots of walking from parts of Clearview (Hard to believe, but the transit options for Harewood Court to Iroquois Ridge Centre are so limited that google actually includes the option to walk the entire way (51 minutes), and a 42 minute transit option that includes a 39 minute walk. The trip with a 15 minute walk takes 41 minutes total.)

How can working people, youth too young to drive, and seniors manage in winter weather with these limited transit options?

Please complete and share the survey!

Thank you!
