  1. Why does Burlington persist in buying diesel buses when most forward thinking cities and countries are looking at green technologies such as electric or hybrid electric? Also I suspect most residents would prefer not to stand and wait in the cold and rain for 30 minutes in anticipation of a bus arriving and would prefer an Uber approach – where you can see when a bus is due and request when you need it.

  2. Great to see this. Thank you all at B Transit.
    I see a set of dates in March then a set in April.
    Are April dates follow ups on March input or repeats of March to widen the outreach?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Jim, the April events will discuss the September 2019 proposed changes and anyone who attends those sessions will be able to provide feedback on the proposed changes to many routes, including moving routes to the south side of the Burlington GO station. Thank you for asking.

  3. I live in the downtown core area. I commute to Toronto and take the go train. I would love a customized transit service to service people like me in the am (6:30- 8) and rush hour ( 5-6:30) that would pick me up at my door and take to the go drop off at Burlington station. City could partner with Uber’s/lyft and do a pilot study. Pricing should be like a bus service.

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
