Public input is wanted as North Battleford looks at expanding city transit.

A public engagement is being held at the Frontier Mall in North Battleford on Thursday, Feb. 4, where residents can have a look at proposed changes to the transit system and have any questions or concerns addressed.

The plan is the result of two years of work by the Battlefords Transit System.

Transit Manager Al Love said the plan looks at expanding service to the Killdeer and Fairview neighbourhoods, as well as fixing other issues like long ride times.

"So we're basically looking for just the public input as to if it's understandable, if it serves their needs, if they think it's going to be of benefit,"  Love explained.

"Because obviously if they don't think the changes are going to benefit them then we're not going to necessarily, or city council wouldn't necessarily, be interested in going down that road," Love said. 

The open house will run from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Frontier Mall, a second public engagement will be held a week later, at the same time, at the Discovery Co-op Mall.
