Public Transit Infrastructure Projects announced for the Metro region

Public transit infrastructure in the metro region will be enhanced thanks to funding from the Provincial and Federal Governments and the City of St. John’s.

The funding of $11.8 million will be used to purchase 18 accessible, hybrid or electric vehicles to replace the current gasoline-burning fleet used in the GoBus service in St. John’s and Mount Pearl.

Solar panel kits will be installed on 120 Metrobus shelters, which will allow the city to illuminate the shelters using solar energy instead of electricity.

Funding will also support the construction of a shared-use path from Logy Bay Road to Portugal Cove Road.
