Except in Winnipeg, where ridership has been stagnant at 38-40 million since 1997.

We need something better. We need RAPID transit NOW!

Winnipeg has one of the best transit systems of any of the cities I have ever been to and it certainly beats the heck out of Toronto even with it's subway system. Frankly I don't think Peggers appreciate what they have for mass transit. Certainly it could always be better but that's true of pretty much every single service that the public expects government to deliver anyway.

We need more bus shacks than Rapid Transit service since the latter only benefits to a select area in Winnipeg. If you need to arrive at a destination on time just wake up a little earlier you lazy butts. Winnipeg is freezing in the winter and what happened to equal treatment.

Ontario Metrolinx plan delayed again Tess Kalinowski 2008/07/08

Road tolls, licencing changes or a hit at the pumps

commuters must now wait until September to hear the unelected government region's plan to

stem gridlock and fund transit improvements to

nudge drivers onto the bus or train...

as if Gas & Diesel Prices aren't Doing the Job Already

There are `no little' plans for head of Metrolinx

Michael Moldenhauer 2008/06/28

Rob MacIsaac, head of Metrolinx, formerly the Greater Toronto Transportation Authority, is thinking BIG, which is a good thing from a transportation planning standpoint.

Of course, big plans also mean big price tags...
