Q6 - Will you commit to building a public transit system that is rapid, reliable, affordable and accessible for all users, with proper transit routes within rural, suburban and lower income communities?

John Redins

Yes.

Hussein Mahmoud

Yes. Ridership confidence is at an all time low. We need to restore confidence by delivering a system that is safe, reliable, and convenient. In ward 10, routes are being changed, and frequencies along certain bus routes are being lowered. We need to create a reliable transit system to entice more usage in order to lower emissions and keep cars off the road. Transit needs to be a reliable option for this to become a reality. That’s the only way the system gets better – and that requires we bring experts to the table to brainstorm and implement a strong plan to transform our communities and connect our city with transit.

Taylor Houstoun

Yes. One of the biggest challenges in my ward is the unreliable transit. It comes at inappropriate times, or scarcely, and I have heard of the persistent delays city-wide. Getting a handle on transit is one of my top priorities and I have some innovative ideas on how to do that. This includes smaller-vehicle fleets which will save energy and money, and on-call style transit service like the way the city of Saskatoon is dabbling with. We can make a reliable, affordable, system if we put our heads together.

Yes. I actually really like the plan that in currently being implemented.  The LRT technical malfunctions have had a cascading effect which has impacted transit top to bottom.  At it's base the plan already in place will significantly improve our transit system both in terms of speed and reliability.  It is essential for us to address and overcome the technical issues so the full potential of the transit plan can be experienced.
