Tran­sit co-op launches fundrais­ing cam­paign

Cape Breton Post - - COMMENT -

PORT HAWKES­BURY — The co­op­er­a­tive that op­er­ates a com­mu­nity tran­sit ser­vice in the Strait Area has launched a fun­dra i sing cam­paign.

Strait Area Tran­sit says that without fundrais­ing, the fare struc­ture would have to be such that it would be un­af­ford­able to most of the rid­er­ship. All do­na­tions to the “On the Move” cam­paign will be ac­knowl­edged and in­come tax re­ceipts will be is­sued.

“Dur­ing its first year of op­er­a­tion Strait Area Tran­sit has seen us­age and rid­er­ship con­tinue to climb from month to month,” said gen­eral man­ager Malcolm Beaton.

“Al­though the non-profit char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tion re­ceives fi­nan­cial sup­port from the four Strait area mu­nic­i­pal units and other agen­cies, th­ese con­tri­bu­tions, along with fare rev­enue, do not cover the op­er­at­ing costs of a tran­sit sys­tem.”
