History

Thanks to the generosity of Brascan Power – Wawa Power, Peter Kiewit Sons Co., Chant Construction Ltd. and Hatch Acres, Wawa was able to get a transit bus. On December 9th, 2005, Mayor Rod Morrison (who was the Mayor at the time) was formally presented with the keys for new “handi-van” which consists of 12 seats and room for two (2) wheelchairs.

This enabled Wawa to access the Gas Tax which can provide up to $25,000 to $30,000 annually to assist with the costs for the operation of the vehicle.

In February 2006, the Municipality began offering a dial-in/demand response transit system to the residents of the community, which consists of a specialized curb-to-curb transit service.
