The City of Williams Lake and BC Transit are hosting on-board surveys, online surveys and open houses looking for customer feedback on proposed short and long-term transit improvements for conventional and handyDART services.

BC Transit ambassadors will conduct on-board surveys on Feb. 3, 2015; getting direct input from current customers who are travelling by bus. Plus there will be four open houses and an online survey focusing on the reliability and connectivity of transit.

The public outreach effort is intended to generate grassroots suggestions to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the transit system in Williams Lake.

The Open House schedule is as follows; Wednesday, Feb. 4 from 10 a.m. to noon at Save-on-Foods and from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Safeway.

On Thursday, Feb. 5 the open house will continue from noon to 2 p.m. at Thompson Rivers University (1250 Western Avenue) and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Cariboo Regional District Library.

For those who are not able to attend the open houses, an online survey will be live from Jan. 28 to Feb. 11 at www.bctransit.com/williams-lake.
