UCPR wants input for new transportation programs

Why does Prescott-Russell need a transit system?

“One of the big challenges is that people feel isolated,” says Pierre Leroux, the chair of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell’s economic development committee.

The UCPR was recently awarded $2 million from the province to develop two transportation programs within the region. The majority of those funds, $1.5 million, will go towards developing an inter-municipal transit system while the rest will go towards a transportation program dedicated to vulnerable individuals.
