Q7 - Will you commit to an active transit network with interconnected and protected bike lanes and multi-use paths City-wide (not just in the downtown core)?

Laine Johnson

Yes. We are lucky to have an abundance of green space in our College Ward neighbourhoods, but connectivity is an issue. We require appropriate bike connectivity as well as protected bike paths and safe sidewalks for overpasses. We need to acknowledge that we are in a transition between the creation of these neighbourhoods as designed for cars, and invest appropriately to protect people choosing to use active transportation. By encouraging people to make these choices when they can, through infrastructure and design that keeps them safe, we lengthen the life of our roads by having fewer cars travel them. With the proposed Baseline Rapid Transit Corridor, we would receive rapid bus service, but also importantly, protected bike lanes and sidewalks that will help our neighbours move east-west reliably and accessibly. The connectivity it would offer to our neighbourhoods will improve the value proposition for local business and it is the right direction for the environment and provides us an alternative to the train, which continues to see problems and delays.

Wendy Davidson

Yes.

Vilteau Delvas

Yes. Not only the bike lane but the wheel chairs etc. In a democratic and growing society every  body should be able to find a form of  transportation suitable for them and not be afraid of the road safety condition.
