- Orillia City Council
The City of Orillia has recently made significant improvements to its public transit system, yet its hours of operation - with no evening service - continue to be a great problem for Orillia's growing population of college and university students.
Transit currently finishes at 6:45 p.m., leaving students who have evening classes (usually finishing at 10:00p.m.) stranded at school, and unable to use transit to get home.
Orillia has two institutions of higher learning, and yet does not provide the type of transit service that college and university students require - restricting which classes they choose to take, where they live, and what part time jobs and volunteer opportunities they are able to take.
As students at Georgian College, Orillia Campus, and of Lakehead-Orillia, we respectfully request that Mayor and Council reconsider their decision NOT to provide evening transit service.
Please revisit this issue, and provide Orillia's college and university students the ability to travel home from night classes via public transit.
