A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.

  1. Every time the bus schedules are changed I look to see if the buses I use will connect. It hasn’t happened yet! If one is going to transfer to a bus at the GO Stn. you will have to get off the bus at the Court House and cross over 4 busy lanes of traffic to make sure you get your connection. If you stay on the bus your transfer will be leaving as you are turning into the GO Stn. and will have a 20 to 40 minute wait for the next bus.

  2. Hopefully the transportation system will ensure that the buses are better connected to the Go system. Currently they leave as the train arrives,

What's your take?
