There has been a lot of reporting about the Mayoral candidate responses to help create dedicated streetcar and/or bus lanes in the city. Today I stumbled across Darren J’s Bike Refugee page where he linked the following items regarding other means of transportation.
tcat, (Toronto Coalition for Active Transportation) had made up two surveys and passed them out to the Mayoral and Council candidates.
Mayoral candidate responses.
Council candidate responses.
(you can search for your councillor’s by Ward)
Some of the council candidates didn’t do much more than select “Strongly Agree” and left no comments, others did write in their thoughts and reasoning for supporting (or not) an initiative.
For the Mayors, one strong question that was posed asked for support of the following:
Do you support funding the following programs to build links between cycling and transit?
* Funding the expansion of the bus bike rack project to all TTC routes by 2010
* Providing enhanced Bike Parking or Bike Stations at all TTC subway stations and transit hubs by 2010
* Installing a full Bike Station that includes supervised bike parking, change facilities and other services at Union Station as part of its reconstruction.
