Background

The Town of LaSalle started a Transit Feasibility Study in the fall of 2015. Public information sessions were held at the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex and at the LaSalle Civic Centre. A telephone survey was conducted and questionnaires were made available to the public. The consultant, Steer Davies Gleave, made presentations at LaSalle Council meetings explaining the findings in their study; there is strong support in the community to invest in a public transit system.
