An Open Letter to HRM’s TSC

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Following our presentation in September 2011 of the outcomes of the three It's More Than Buses public sessions to HRM's Transportation Standing Committee (TSC), the committee asked Metro Transit to propose five key steps that would result in increased ridership and improved service. While implementation of Metro Transit’s Five Big Moves for Transit, proposed in their November 24, 2011 report, would represent significant progress, we feel there are critical elements missing from the proposals that need to be addressed. We describe these elements in an Open Letter to the TSC (see link below) that was discussed by the committee at their January 9, 2012 meeting.
