A proposed expansion of Codiac Transpo service in Riverview has been put on hold due to budget constraints and other spending priorities. Riverview had been looking at an overhaul of its transit system for 2016, but town council decided at a meeting last Saturday to defer the plan for now in favour of other priorities.
Councillors were quick to suggest that the delay will allow the town to better evaluate how to improve services, with Moncton Councillor and chair of Codiac Transpo’s governance committee Charles Leger saying the town’s move was “an opportunity for Riverview to get it right.”
