The Interlake Region of Manitoba will benefit from on-demand public transit with an investment of $97,971 from the federal government.

Announced by Minister Sean Fraser and Reeve Brian N. Johnson, this project will provide residents, including seniors and persons with disabilities, with accessible public transportation options to do their day-to-day activities, such as attending medical appointments.

Funding will support the purchase of a wheelchair accessible van to provide transit services to communities located in the Interlake Region of Manitoba, including the Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton, Pine Dock, and Hecla & Grindstone Provincial Park.

This project aligns with the vision for a Green Prairie Economy that is prosperous, sustainable, and benefits everyone. By investing in infrastructure, the federal and provincial governments are growing the economy, building resilient communities, and improving the lives of residents.
