Delaney Seeks to Poll Commuters
CORNWALL, ON – Delaney Bus Lines has launched an online survey to poll Cornwall and area residents about intercity bus service.
The poll comes on the heels of discussion in the community and around the Council table about recent changes to rail and bus service to the City.
"We're interested to find out if people in Cornwall are looking for additional bus service," says Mark Begg, Manager of Delaney Bus Lines. "If there is enough interest, then we'll look closely at expanding our commuter services."
Delaney already operates a sold-out daily commuter service to and from the Nation's Capital, Ottawa. The bus carries 56 people in full-service coach-comfort, and makes several stops in Cornwall to pick-up and drop-off passengers. The service was launched in 2007 and has steadily grown in popularity.
Cornwall is also serviced by Greyhound which also makes the trip to Ottawa, and Megabus, which operates routes along Highway 401 to Toronto and Montreal and beyond.
Delaney's online survey can be found at www.CornwallCommuter.com. Mr. Begg is hoping to get 100 responses or more.
"It would be nice to hear from both current and future riders," said Mr. Begg. "We hope the data will provide us a good picture of what people want, and will help us identify the demand for expanded routes. If people want to provide more information, we are happy to hear from them via phone and email as well."
Mr. Begg noted that he will be happy to share the results with the community.
“If there was a need, a definite need from point A in Cornwall to point B, wherever it may be, I’m willing to step up to the plate and put that bus out,” he said.
