"The first thing we need to do is take a long look at the transportation schedule to see what routes need to be adjusted to provide better service to all the areas of the city. Also we could like other cities provide a free service to the most underused parts of our routes to get more riders who will then see the advantages of using public Transit. Next we must do a better job plowing side walks and road ways to aid those who are ``differently abled`` to get around as well as make it easier for public transit users to get to their stops. We must form a committee for the bike users in our city where they can bring to us a better plan to make bike travel more safe and efficient for them as well as how to attract new bike riders in our city. Moving people throughout our city so that they can easily and efficiently reach all areas should be a priority. The roadways, sidewalks and public transit are how money travels into our city, we have to make it as easy as possible for our citizens to reach our businesses or recreational facilities or they will just turn on their computers to spend their money."

“Greater Sudbury has a vast circuit of public transit which a resident can use to get from one end of the city to the other. This is not ideal for everyone all the time, but for most, public transit should be a viable option, if not every day, then at least a few days each week. Biking is also a big part of sustainable transportation and the City has made bike paths a part of many road projects. This being said, the City must do better on all fronts. Public transit must remain affordable and available to all residents and can be better promoted through rewarding frequent riders with better discounts and by having more free ride occasions to show residents how efficient transit can be in getting someone from point A to point B. Bike paths need to be constructed properly and not as an afterthought where part of an existing lane is marked off for portions of a road making bikes weave in and out of marked lanes. This is not safe for the cyclist or drivers. Where a new road project has had bike paths approved, they need to be full, continuous lanes for the safety of all involved. This will promote cycling as means of safe transportation.”
