Transportation Task Force

The Transportation Task Force was created in order to monitor and respond to the development of a Multi-Modal Transportation Strategy for Northern Ontario. Members of the Task Force have participated in the Technical Advisory Committee created by the Ministry of Transportation to help review and inform them in the research and development of the strategy.

The Task Force has also reviewed all of the technical papers produced by or on behalf of the Ministry and provided specific feedback on their contents.

An Inter-community Bus Transportation Group was formed to examine the options for providing every highway community with some form of bus service. Their report, adopted by the Transportation Task Force, the CVNW Board and endorsed and submitted by both NOMA and NOACC can be read through this link:
