All candidates were asked to take the bus on Sunday, Sept 14 or 28 and meet FST members across the street from the bus terminal at 1:30pm.
(Yes, we chose a Sunday on purpose!) Sunday service doesn’t work for many Sudburians who work, shop, go to church, or visit family and friends. Routes are not the same as during the week and service is infrequent. Friends of Sudbury Transit has made improving Sunday service one of our top priorities for change.
36% of candidates (25/70) completed the challenge.
84% of those candidates (22/25) completed a short survey afterwards. The results are posted here.
