Transit co-op launches fundraising campaign
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.”
