Decision to be ratified Tuesday at special council meeting
The city is changing lanes when it comes to who operates the Orillia Transit buses.
Council committee recommended TOK Transit Limited take over the service from First Canada ULC effective July 1. The decision is set to be ratified in a special meeting of council Tuesday night.
Six respondents submitted bids through the city’s request for proposal (RFP) process. TOK was at the top of the list when considering both the components of the bid — factors including operating experience and plans for improved customer service and maintenance — and the cost proposed to the city, explained Jeff Hunter, manager of construction/transit.
