Transit Ridership Recovery and Growth (A. Paquette)

 

 

 

Councillor A. Paquette stated that at the next regular meeting of City Council, he would move the following:

That Administration conduct a feasibility study to identify strategies to achieve transit ridership recovery and growth. The study should consider a variety of investment scenarios to encourage transit use and recognize the importance of transit in building a great city, including:

1.    Economic and environmental benefits and return on investment

2.    Fare-related policies and practices, including outcomes of subsidies ranging to zero fare

3.    Improved safety and customer experience

4.    Improved efficiency of service delivery, including best practices with regional transit services

The study should confirm the outcomes of public transit investment in medium-large cities, including economic mobility, productivity, sustainability, support for vulnerable populations, etc.
