“It's in everyone's best interest to get more people on underused bus routes, even if you never ride it.
More riders: make our transit system more cost-effective; reduce the number of cars on our roads; and increases the safety of passengers and drivers (Assaults on crowded buses are much less likely than on mostly empty buses).
If I'm elected as councillor for Ward 1 my priority for transit will be to increase ridership.
I'll bring a motion to council directing staff to development of a ridership growth strategy with input from you. We'll establish annual targets based on long-term strategies and low-cost, easy-to-do quick wins.
