City's Gas Tax Funding Drives New Bus Purchase 
Ontario has announced their annual Gas Tax funding and Timmins is on the list to receive $620,457. With the investment, Timmins Transit is purchasing another new bus.

“The new bus will replace an older model that is at end of life,” says Ken Krcel, Director of Public Works and Environmental Services. “Ontario’s support has allowed us to continue to update our fleet, as part of the City’s 10-year financial plan. Upgrading Transit’s active infrastructure is our current priority.”

Improvements to Timmins Transit’s infrastructure also include on-going renovations at the Timmins Transit Terminal on Spruce St. and a route optimization review.

“We want to thank the Government of Ontario for continuing to provide necessary funding for public transit,” adds Krcel. “We know that residents rely on us to deliver safe and reliable transportation. We have several projects underway that speak to our commitment to meet that expectation."
