Province Announces Funding For Public Transit In Parry Sound Muskoka

MPP Norm Miller says the province will be providing $396,000 to municipalities providing public transit across Parry Sound-Muskoka including $154,443 to support public transit in Bracebridge, $95,869 for transit in Huntsville, $89,528 for Muskoka, and $56,543 for services in Parry Sound.

The funding is part of the province’s Gas Tax program.

Miller says that supporting public transit is more important than ever as communities struggle to maintain services during COVID-19. This is especially true for smaller communities like those in Parry Sound – Muskoka,” he said.

To make up for reduced gas sales due to COVID-19, this year’s Gas Tax funding includes one-time additional funding of $120.4 million to ensure municipalities can support their transit systems.
