1/25 #Brampton, I said I'd do a thread on the new bus facility, so here it is. Sorry about the delay, I've been sick and that has slowed my pace for research.

To start, I need to explain a little bit about it, the project is a storage and maintenance facility.
2/25 it will be where buses get stored overnight, and also get serviced, repairs, etc. Brampton is rapidly running out of space to store buses, in an email I got in early January 2019 from the City, I was told we would be at ideal capacity by 2020
3/25 the facilities have a design capacity for space for buses, sometimes they can be squeezed in in other locations, or parked outside overnight (highly undesirable for a bunch of reasons), but this causes many problems, I'll come back to this later in the thread.

A few weeks ago I lost my card holder that had my @PRESTOcard, @BikeShareTO, and @YMCA_Canada passes...

So, yeah, one night while I was taking #BikeBrampton home, I thought I heard and ran over something. It wasn't obvious at the time what that was, so I ignored it. I realized the next morning that it must have been my cardholder because it was missing.
I checked in with lost and found with the #Brampton @GOtransit to see if anyone had turned it in. Nobody had. I decided that I wasn't going to take the chance of someone using the cards. I cancelled all of the cards that were in the holder and ordered new ones.

Good morning #Brampton, today is Wednesday, July 4, and there is no council meeting today.

I think this morning is a reasonable time to start discussing the city issues and the #onpoli election is over, and the #brampoli election is fast approaching.
The city of Brampton is currently undergoing a major housing and transportation crisis. The city has sprawled out incredibly rapidly in a disorganized fashion, consisting almost entirely of single family homes. We now have a catastrophic housing crisis in rentals, CMHC data shows
There being a 0.0% vacancy in (legal) bachelor apartments, and 1, 2, 3 bedrooms are sitting in the low 1.x range. The price? TREB estimated the median cost of a legal one bedroom at $1595. If you make $15/hour working full time, that is 4/5th of your take home pay.
