Tell the Town Where to Go

Do you want to tell the Town where to go? If so, Town Council and staff would like to invite you to participate in a focus group so you can help shape the future of Fort Erie Transit over the next 5 years and beyond.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a good cross-section of community stakeholders such as:

  • a long-time transit rider
  • a non-user of transit
  • a local business owner
  • an organization representative involved in active transportation, accessibility issues, youth or seniors issues

What do you get?
An opportunity to help shape Fort Erie Transit for years to come based on insight and feedback from multiple community perspectives.
When is the focus group session?
Our focus group meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 1, 2016
at 9:00 am at Town Hall. Please allow for up to 3 hours to participate

Here’s how you can get involved
To be a part of the focus group, please submit a Letter of Interest by
mail or email by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 20, 2016 to:

Carla Stout, Transit Program Manager
1 Municipal Centre Dr., Fort Erie, ON L2A 2S6
cstout@forterie.ca

Your Letter of Interest/ Email must include: Your name, address, phone number and email address. The category you would like to represent i.e. long-time transit rider, non-user, local business owner, organization representative (only two-three members per category will be chosen). A brief summary of why you would like to participate in the TFG (approximately 100 words).

Because the focus group will be limited in size (in order to allow all participants to fully engage in discussion), it is possible that we may not be able to accept everyone interested in participating. Don’t have the time to participate in the focus group but still want to
have your say? No problem! We will also be undertaking a web-based survey in June that you can fill in online. For more information and/or updates on the project, please visit: forterie.ca/PublicTransitInformation

Please note that the names of those who submitted their expression of interest as well as those selected to participate will become public record and may be published in relation to this process.

Accessibility Accommodation
If you require any accommodations for a disability in order to participate or attend meetings, please let us know in your Letter of Interest so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
