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.
