The Nov 6th #Transit Commission will be extraordinary meeting and should be treated as such. #ottpoli
This #transit meeting should NOT include public delegations. It should be committee of whole with all active councillors and the citizen commissioners. #ottpoli

I would be more than happy to guide on anyone who wishes to start learning #NimblrTA

The idea is let's do it for next 30 days and review where we are and what change it may bring.

Content is what is readily available but would be done in steps.

1. Hey, Aaron! Why do you care about transit so much?

I’m glad you asked!

What I REALLY care about is what transit does & wow! does it do a lot.

Hop on board - let’s tour few of the amazing things we get from a great transit network & why it matters.

2. Transit is an economic driver. The 2009 Ottawa transit strike had a negative economic impact of about $400 million over 51 days - that’s est. $2.5 billion a year!

In 2019 #yeg that number will be even higher.

Let that sink in a little.

#economy #yegcc
3. A 2016 Auditor’s report estimated transit saves #Yeg about $700 million a year by reducing congestion/ traffic jams, collisions & decreasing parking demand and environmental impacts.

This is big money, folks.

Let’s unpack that.

Next Wednesday @CityofVancouver staff report back to #Council on ramping up our #ClimateAction, in line with the #IPCC science and in response to the #ClimateEmergency. Here’s my breakdown of the recommendations 👇
This #ClimateEmergency report outlines 6 Big Moves for Council to direct staff to pursue & come back w. comprehensive/costed plans. Plus 53 Accelerated Actions to move on now. The targets are strong & won’t be easy. This is what governing in line with the science looks like.
Big Move 1: By 2030, 90% of people will live within an easy walk/roll of their daily needs (we’re at 45%). Focused on land-use & complete n'hoods, it would ⬇️ 153,000 tonnes carbon/year, while creating ⬆️ housing choices, ⬆️ social interaction, and supporting local businesses.

No mention of #Gatineau serving @OC_Transpo buses in post #LRT readiness report? Specifically not in remaining route adjustments summary. Only STO service?
@AllanHubley_23 @AltaVistaWard18 @TimTierney @tm_kavanagh @glengower @cmckenney @JennaSudds @RiverWardRiley
Ready for Rail My Route page has some information but doesn't address peak hour capacity provisions. 85 will have to run a lot to handle all East Ottawa folks transferring at Pimisi. (Western folks seem to have more trips / route options.) #LRT #transit
The #transit fare zone transfer areas for Tunneys, Hurdman and Blair are hard to picture. Pedestrians come at those stations beside bus roadway so... #LRT

Ok, @Penalosa_G presentation is amazing and it’s just getting started....
Underground path in toronto sucks the life out of the city; segregation not integration
Bad weather? Need better #infrastructure ; focus on the better 200 days, not the 20 bad ones; separated bike lanes! Safe, bike in winter, keeps people safe;

Good morning! ☕ A nugget from the upcoming @DCHCMPO Board meeting: Growth in vehicle miles traveled (VMT) is outpacing population growth in the Triangle and throughout North Carolina. dchcmpo.legistar.com/gateway.aspx?m…
@DCHCMPO As more people move here, they encounter land use patterns, transportation infrastructure, and policy making that encourage driving as the primary or only travel mode. So what do they do? They drive.
At the state level, resources through @NCDOT to make lasting, substantial changes in nonhighway infrastructure are paltry compared to those for road widening, intersection and interchange "improvements," and other projects that reinforce driving as the best and only travel mode.

Oh @cmrlofficial . Why so averse to learning? New stations, same old access problems. #Senior #Joyride thread - I spy with my jaundiced eye. #ChennaiMetro #A11y #Fails @DisabilityIndia
Really @chennaicorp ! This is the access to Nehru Park Chennai Metro station? At points the pavement itself is non existent with bus and Poonamallee High Rd traffic whizzing by. Senior citizen required support on both sides with parking 50 m away. @cmrlofficial @DisabilityIndia
1 foot footpath with trip with at one side and someone sitting blocking the other side of the tree. Not to mention the auto blocking the way too. #Pedestrian #Accessibility #NotACakeWalk

Jumping onto this webinar now. Not too late to join the awesome @jessicaroberts to learn how to get people moving in new ways. #walking #bicycleschangelives #transit #mobility #TDM
Subsidized transit card a great predictor of increased transit use. Use loss framing to get 11x more use, says @jessicaroberts : You're missing out if you don't take advantage of the money they're putting in your pocket. #transit
"Fresh Start Effect": We set an arbitrary day/time like New Year's Day to become a new person. Reaching out to someone who has just moved w/info to help them establish new transportation habits in this new setting is one effective technique.

Kicking off #WalkBikePlaces with an infrastructure tour on @BlueBikesNOLA. Several under way now; I'm on the one that looks at public art, placemaking. #bikeNOLA
First stop: Jackson Square, National Historic Site, named for Andrew J. Led battle that saved NOLA in 1812 but owned enslaved people. Should his statue come down? #WalkBikePlaces
Beautiful murals! Families of Plessy and Ferguson reconciled with art in celebration. Studio BE right across the street--big studio space in covered warehouse. @BlueBikesNOLA station right here at park.

Pilot in BC Canada: @velometro 3-wheeled enclosed #ebikes operating as shared vehicles. Think Car2Go+bike. Geofenced to keep off pedestrian walkways. #TRBAM
If @velometro classified as bikes they can be in bike lanes but you couldn't park these at a bike rack. Lots of policy issues to be worked through. #TRBAM #bikeshare (?)
Traffic operations questions created by low-power vehicles that aren't quite bikes. If they operate (maybe in general motor vehicle lanes) + you want smaller vehicles used for urban delivery + working for bike mode shift, what happens? #TRBAM #LEVs
