|Gelder, Rich||Yes||Yes I do. In this order:
1. Completion of the LRT line from McMaster University to Eastgate Square;
2. An end to the current practice of area rating for public transit and a move towards a straight urban-rural split.
3. Enhanced service for the outlying areas, in particular Dundas and Greensville (which doesn't have transit currently).
4. Implementation of the other four letters of the BLAST network as envisioned by the 2011 Rapid Ready Report.
5. A return to the schedule of the 10-year transit plan.
|Mitchell, Pamela||N/A||Declined to answer|
|Vanderbeek, Arlene||Yes||Yes, I support a review of the status quo which should address connectivity throughout the City, with the goal of improving not only routing, but amenities and safety for riders and drivers. I strongly support the implementation of a more flexible and reliable system that provides frequent access to employment areas, the airport and the GO system.|
