The City of Val-d’Or is launching a citizen consultation to improve its public and active transportation offering.

The population is invited, by June 21, to complete a questionnaire on their travel habits by car, on foot, by bike and by public transport.

Participants can also identify problem areas on interactive maps and suggest possible solutions.

The specialized firm Vector 5 is supporting Val-d’Or in this process which will lead, in December 2024, to a diagnosis of the mobility of people in Val-d’Or and to recommendations related to collective and active transportation.

This question has come up often recently during our economic development and housing consultations, underlines Lysiane Morin, municipal councilor. We feel that we need to work more on the issue of collective and active transportation. We want expert recommendations, so we don’t do anything. We want to know where we are going, with a good game plan.

Partners such as Taxibus, Transport La Promenade and the Or-et-des-Bois School Service Center will also be consulted during this process.

Val-d’Or promises to implement actions that will result from these recommendations.

“It’s certain that we will have to take the elephant in small bites,” adds Lysiane Morin. We won’t be able to do everything in the first year. But at least we will have a vision of improving our collective and active transportation offer which will be part of a vision of sustainable development. »
