The tenders for construction of transit priority measures on Robie Street (Quinpool - Young), Young Street (Robie - Bayers), and Bayers Road (Romans - Connaught) are going to Regional Council tomorrow for approval for budget increase. If approved construction will begin within three weeks.

Highlights from the 2019/2020 Q3 (October-December) Halifax Transit Report in front of council next week:

Recommendation for electronic fare methods coming in 2020/2021 Q1 (I think this means by the end of June). They say it's on target to be implemented in 2020/21.

Boardings were up 6.8% from this quarter last year, revenue up 12.6% (8.7% of the revenue increase is due to the fare increase)

Transit priority measure for Portland Street being designed for 2020/21

On-time performance (up to 1 minute early or 3 minutes late) up 2% year-over-year, to 79%
