Navigating Grand Erie:
Survey focuses on transportation needs of workforce
Access to transportation for workers to get to and from work is an workforce issue in Grand Erie.
The Workforce Planning Board is studying transportation and transit needs, especially between the region’s six communities: Brantford, Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk, Six Nations and New Credit.
Workers who do not have a vehicle or access to transit face barriers to employment. Businesses may also find the lack of transit a barrier to attracting and retaining workers.
Navigating Grand Erie: Transportation Survey looks more deeply at these issues. The survey focuses on people’s experience and needs across the region, both those who currently use transit and those who do not.
The survey was conducted in the Fall of 2020, and findings will be posted on this page.
