York Region Transit is holding the first of nine scheduled Public Information Centres (PICs) today in the front lobby of the Aurora Public Library, at 15145 Yonge Street on the northeast corner of Yonge and Church Street. Drop by between 4 to 7 pm to speak with a YRT staff member about the service changes proposed for 2013.
If you're a regular rider in Aurora, I hope you'll attend this PIC and let YRT know how the transit system is working for you—these events are one of the key ways the agency collects feedback from its customers during the year. Be sure to review the 2013 Service Plan proposals ahead of time so you understand the changes YRT is considering and how they might affect your usual routes.
Naturally, the best way to get to the PIC is aboard YRT/Viva. Here's how you can get to the library later today:
By Viva: Take Viva Blue north or south to the Wellington Vivastation, then walk south two blocks to Church Street. The library is on the northeast corner.
From Yonge Street: North of Bernard Avenue, take Route 98 to the Yonge St/Church St stop (number 1744 if you're heading north; 4683 if you're heading south). Riders south of Bernard can first take 99 northbound to Bernard Terminal, then transfer there to the 98 (or to Viva Blue, by walking to the Bernard Vivastation on Yonge Street).
Riders on Yonge north of Church Street can alternatively take Route 22A south to the Yonge St/Church St stop (4683) instead.
From Bayview Ave north of Wellington Street, or Wellington west of Bayview: Take Route 54 southbound/westbound to its terminus at Victoria and Wellington (stop 6183), then walk two blocks south and one block west to Yonge and Church (or, if that's a bit far for you, board the 54 again northbound and exit at the first stop, number 6174).
From York University, Keele Street south of King Road, or King east of Yonge: Take Route 22A north to the Yonge St/Church St stop (1744).
Once you're back from the PIC, be sure to post about your experience here!
