North Grenville receives $7,000+ in transit funding from Ontario government

Our community is one of more than 100 receiving funding to offset expenses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on public transit.

The Ontario government has announced $7,207 will be going towards the Municipality of North Grenville, as part of phase four of its “Safe Restart Agreement,” a joint federal and provincial initiative meant to help the economy recover from the pandemic.

According to the announcement, the money will go towards covering things like revenue losses and operating expenses for their transportation programs between February 1st and December 31st of 2022. 

The total amount of money being invested across Ontario during phase four comes out to $505-million. Officials say the amount of transit funding that’s been provided to municipalities since 2020 is over $2-billion.
