Committee seeking more feedback ahead of Feb. 3 cityLINK decision

The Civic Works Standing Policy Committee wants to hear from Transit ridership and stakeholders.

On January 6, SPC members voted unanimously to postpone, to its February 3 meeting, the potential approval of the cityLINK Network Redesign Results in order to gather more public feedback before proceeding with any further decisions and direction.

Notices for the February 3 meeting will be on the City's website and social media – as well as with posters places on buses and at Transit hubs – in attempts for messaging to reach Transit users directly.

The recommendation presented to the Civic Works SPC is for cityLINK to become permanent, with quarterly adjustments made to reflect feedback, changing travel patterns and metric indicators.

The potential alternatives presented are:

  • Restore budget under cityLINK, to build ridership and further improve efficiency and effectiveness of the system
  • Return to the previous system, at a cost of $352,000 annually with a $150,000 one-time cost

Residents can provide feedback on the cityLINK network by calling 311. Alternatively, feedback can be submitted to the Civic Works SPC directly via written letter, online or by registering to speak at the February 3 meeting. Information about providing feedback to the Civic Works SPC can be found here

January 6 full presentation and meeting can be viewed online here and the cityLINK performance Summary can be viewed here.

For Public Inquiries:

Call 311 |  Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
