T3 Transit Info and Bike Rack Demos at Charlottetown Farmers’ Market

Are you curious about the City’s transit service or wondering how to load your bicycle onto the T3 Transit buses’ bike racks? The Mayor’s Taskforce on Active Transportation, in partnership with T3 Transit and the Charlottetown Farmers’ Market, invites the public to stop by the Charlottetown Farmers Market on Saturday, September 28 to learn more about transit and how to combine transit, walking and cycling when getting around the City. Two information sessions will be offered at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. where T3 staff can answer questions about using the transit service and demonstrate how to load and unload bikes from the bus bike racks and use the accessibility ramps on the buses. Combining transit, and active transportation is a great way to get around Charlottetown and live a sustainable lifestyle.

For those who can’t attend, information on T3 Transit is available online at: https://t3transit.ca/
