Barrie Transit Facility Project (Barrie, ON)

Project Description

Barrie, Ontario, October 13, 2011 - The renovation of the Barrie transit facility will provide enhanced operation and maintenance services to sustain the current bus fleet; improve operational efficiency and quality of services; increase transportation ridership; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; produce direct economic and social benefits for Barrie both during and after construction; and encourage competitive bidding on the operations and maintenance of the City's fleet. With the P3 approach the City will be moving the operations and maintenance to a performance based contract providing higher quality bus operations and services for its citizens.

Once selected, the private sector proponent will design, build and finance the construction of the transit facility in addition to the operation and maintenance of the City's bus fleet.
