London Transit: Providing Riders With Convenient and Efficient Transportation

As Discussed in Business Review Canada, London Transit Works to Exceed Customer Expectations

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 16, 2012) - In a report in Business Review Canada, General Manager Larry Ducharme discusses how London Transit provides a reputable, dependable public transit system.

London Transit operates both accessible conventional transit and specialized transit (paratransit) services. Throughout the early 1990s, the conventional service was gutted, resulting in and contributing to the loss of 6 million rides. In 1996, London Transit commenced strategically rebuilding the service which has seen ridership mushroom from 12.4 million riders in 1996 to 22.4 million riders in 2011.

Today, customers are seeking upwards of 75,000 more hours of service including coverage area, time of day and day of week. London Transit is now working in conjunction with CUTA to lobby for improved urban transit strategies and a holistic approach to solving the public transit question in Canada.

"Our biggest challenge is expanding and redefining the services and we're doing that as part of the City's transportation master plan. The plan calls for implementing a nodes/corridor strategy using a bus rapid transit platform resulting in providing a higher level and quality of service," says Ducharme. "Implementing the plan will be a challenge given current economic reality meaning we will have to explore all options and opportunities."
