Transit users forum April 1, Central Library

For the third year, Burlington for Accessible, Sustainable Transit (BFAST) is hosting a transit users forum:

Date: Saturday, April 1

Time: 10am-12:30pm (doors open 9:30 for continental breakfast)

Place: Central Library, 2331 New Street

This year’s forum will feature a presentation by Burlington Transit’s Acting Director Jeff Black. Using interactive technology, attendees will be able to participate in a survey that will be used to assist in the City-mandated transit study that is currently underway.

For the second year, BFAST will be issuing a report card on how transit in Burlington serves its users and the needs of our city.

Last year, nearly 100 transit users attended, including seniors, commuters, youth, the disabled and other Burlingtonians. This year, additional invited guests include representatives from Burlington’s business community, our provincial MPPs and federal MPs. Sponsors include nine community organizations and the Burlington Gazette.

Additional information is included in the attached flyer: 2017-transit-forum-poster-cmyk.

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.
