Holyrood Deputy Mayor Mark Lane will lead a task force to review existing transportation services within the town and Conception Bay area.
"Since the termination of the historical Fleetline bus service several weeks ago, some residents from the area have expressed serious concern regarding the lack of a transit system to St. John's" he said in a prepared statement.
"I have spoken to people and families who need to avail of services not currently offered in Holyrood. The problem is, is that these people do not own a personal motor vehicle to get to the city. This is an issue that needs to be investigated further. It is our responsibility".
Fleetline recently terminated its daily Conception Bay-St. John's bus run - the "Bay Run," as it was known - because the service was not financially feasible.
The service had been in operation for more than 80 years.
Lane, with his council's support, said the task force will work with other municipalities, private business owners and residents in the Conception Bay area to determine a course of action to ultimately provide transportation services to those who need it.
