The Planning & Design Centre’s (PDC) Sustainable Transportation Task Force, in partnership with FUSION Halifax, is working at the grass roots level to advance our region’s shift toward a more sustainable transportation system. It’s More Than Buses features three public forums designed to engage citizens in objectively exploring how to improve HRM’s public transportation system. Experts from across the country will weigh in on the topic. Each session will be part panel presentations and part breakout groups, inviting the public to take inspiration from the panelists and contribute their own ideas. The three sessions will be iterative in the sense that ideas from the first session will inform the content of the second and third sessions. This series is unique in that we are seeking both the urban and suburban perspective on this issue.

Thank you to the Downtown Halifax Business Commission and the many individuals who have contributed their support to this event.
