The Village on Main Community Improvement District (CID) is a non-profit organization that envisions an inclusive and sustainable community in the Main Street-Tacoma area of Dartmouth.

In our transformation to an Age Friendly Community, we are seeking to determine where, how, and why residents travel, so that we can advocate for public transportation that would better connect the communities of the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM).

This survey will not ask for any identifying information, so all responses will remain completely anonymous. Please feel free to contact us at (902) 407-3533 or welcome@villageonmain.ca with any questions or comments. Watch our transformation at www.villageonmain.ca  

Thank you!
