Current BRT Proposal
I am currently against the Bus Rapid Transit for this city.
I have already seen what it has done to Richmond Hill on Highway 7. Traffic now takes 45 minutes or more in what
used to take 20 minutes. This does not add up to the 3 minutes that the Bus would gain.
There is no increase to passengers. So the money the city has to pay to do this project would continue to fall on
the property taxes of the city since you would have no increase to ridership. Your city already has to pay for your
Transit system now, how much more will this cost you?
I do have an alternate proposal for the people.
This is where Democracy Kicks in what is your vote on this issue?
If I was your MPP all VOTES that 60% of you agreed with is what I would carry with me to Queens Park.
In the 59% to 40% we would need a discussion on Pros and Cons with amendments.
