Halifax Regional Municipality is committed to excellence in service delivery. We are creating a system that provides seamless access to services and information through the Internet, phone and in-person.
This year a new Integrated Dispatch Centre will allow for better coordination of public safety and emergency services. In addition, our new Mobile Trunk Radio Network will provide a fully-integrated voice communications system for police, fire, medical and emergency services.
This year, we're making ongoing improvements to our public transit system, including laying the groundwork to begin implementation of the first phase of the Bus Rapid Transit System from Sackville and Cole Harbour to the downtown core scheduled for May 2005. Construction will begin on the new transit terminal for Cole Harbour early this summer.
We're also working with the Province through Transportation Minister Ron Russell on a proposed Capital Transportation Authority that will create numerous efficiencies for transportation infrastructure within our municipality.
One that will enable HRM to plan for the future, with one of the most integrated transportation strategies in Canada. One that will deal with all roads, the Halifax-Dartmouth bridges, public transit, ferry, rail, parking and bikeways. – less–ZoomInfo
