Town of Innisfil: We need a bus system running through the town of Alcona.

      Angie Flammia

      Alcona, Canada

Alcona is a very small town, and there are not many job opportunities for our youth seeking employment. A bus system would provide our youth with transportation to where they need to go to get employed.
Our recreational center (the YMCA) is about and hour walk from town, with a bus passing by the YMCA on a half hour/hourly basis it would give children/teens a better opportunity to work out, play sports, and even join a group.
There is an elderly home located in Alcona, the older people are sometimes seen walking (even struggling) down the street just to get a simple cup of coffee or to go get groceries. With a bus system in place, the elderly can enjoy a day out, with much less strain on them.
There are many good reasons and benefits to the Innisfil/Alcona area getting public transportation, and although there have been statements such as; "We are currently doing a transportation master plan.." They have been saying these things for years and action should certainly be taken considering the amount of people a bus system would benefit.

To:
Town of Innisfil, Barb Baguley
Innisfil, more specifically the town of Alcona desperately need a bus system. I have created a petition in order to show you that many people agree and would utilize the opportunity of a city bus.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      It would alleviate the pressures of commuting greater distances to get to work or even to areas where there is supplemented transportation available to those in immediate reach of the resource. There are people who don't have access to a vehicle or who would rather not burden those who do. It's much safer than having to walk or bike on the edges of the road; easier than having to come up with the money to cover inflated taxi fares ($20/4km) just to get from here to there. Give the members of the community a chance.

      Stop spending foolish money like a 6.5 Million dollar library in Lefroy. We should be building real infrastructure.
