Public transportation is a vital component to developing healthy, active communities. Transportation services increase the number of ways individuals can move and access locations throughout the city. A public transit system also reduces carbon emissions by providing alternatives to personal vehicles and by encouraging active transportation modes.
To increase regional accessibility, the City provides regular and seasonal public transportation services.
