|Daljeet, Suresh Venodh||Yes||Yes, our transit is decades behind. The LRT and a transit plan to connect the entire city will bring development and business. After the LRT is built, we have to look at an North South line continuing all the way up the maintain and with easy access to the Airport. I would like to see a mountain transit hub and improved connections to Ancaster Business Park, Red Hill Business Park and the Airport.
|Farr, Jason||Yes||I supported and continue to support the approx. 300 million-dollar Ten Year Transit Strategy.|
|Kroetsch, Cameron||Yes||Yes, I support improved public transit. As part of that improvement we need to:
● End transit area rating.
● Fund transit including getting back on track with the 10 Year Local Transit Strategy.
● Make improvements to the 10 Year Local Transit Strategy that include the implementation of an independent transit board, super express buses to and from key hubs, demand-responsive transit, new routes, and the exploration of means-based fares.
● Support our front line transit workers by helping them to get improved contract language to protect their health and safety.
|Smith, Nicole||Yes||We need to end area rating and properly invest in public transit.|
|Tennant, Mark||Yes||I support improved public transit. Public ownership of city operations has proven to be best for working Hamiltonians. HSR should remain an important piece of our transit plan moving forward. Improved service to the outlying areas, safety measures in place to protect drivers, and the consideration to have HSR operate the LRT. I support the Ten Year transit strategy.|
