A survey has been created involving the return of passenger rail to the region.
The Northeastern Ontario Rail Network and the Committee Promoting Muskoka Rail Travel set up the online survey.
“One year ago, newly elected PC leader Doug Ford promised to return passenger rail service on the Toronto to Cochrane line which had been cancelled in 2012. This promise has been reiterated several times in the past 12 months,” stated Lucille Frith, NEORN and CPMRT Co-chair in a release.
“The April 2019 Budget had no dollar line item for the passenger rail service but Vic Fedeli stated in the legislature the government is focusing on identifying opportunities for a modern, sustainable transportation system in Northern Ontario.”
There are several questions that cover the reasons people may use the train or how many times they may go to and from Toronto, even if they prefer morning or evening travel.
"The Ford Government has stated they are listening to the people and support passenger rail in the north," said Frith.
Frith adds they want to provide data that will support the return of passenger rail between Toronto and Cochrane as promised.
“Now have your say by responding to our survey,” she said.
The survey goes until June 30.
Officials say the results will be released to Ontario Northland in July.
