|Danko, John-Paul||Yes||Yes, I support improved public transit in Hamilton. In Ward 8, a big part of the problem is that bus routes are often convoluted and confusing and do not serve people well to get where they need to go when they need to get there.

The second step is a commitment to drastically increase bus headways on key routes. We have to make transit much more convenient before people with ride the bus because they want to not because they have to.|

I have also taken calls from parents who live on the East Mountain and their children have part time jobs in the Meadowlands. On the weekend, these young people would spend more that 6 hours on the bus and waiting for connections to do a 4 hour shift. This definitely needs to change.|
