Sustainable Transportation Survey Questions Summary

Candidate name 1. What does sustainable transportation mean to you?

Aaron Beaudry

Lin Gibson

Getting around our vast city greener than ever before! Whether it's improved schedules, affordable (maybe even free at peak times) public transit; safe bicycle paths or pedestrian sidewalks new and improved

Les Lisk

There should be smaller busses available to pick up seniors or handicap citizens in all areas of Greater Sudbury.This would allow seniors to stay in their homes.Sidewalks need to be smooth,not interlock bricks which make it difficult for wheelchairs .Do roads correct the first time with proper infrastructure for cycling and pedestrians.

Wyman MacKinnon

Deb McIntosh

It is a very important issue for the future of Greater Sudbury. We need to invest in other (less expensive) modes of transportation beyond the single occupant vehicle. Continuing to widen and build new roads is not sustainable, we already have an 80 year infrastructure deficit; every time we widen or create new road (that will need maintenance in 10 to 15 years) we extend that infrastructure deficit.

Paul Stopciati

Sustainable transportation to me means that we keep our existing transportation and find ways to improve it.
