Five of our board of directors were at today’s truly epic #TransitCommission meeting...it took almost 9.5 hours! We were there to support #ParaParity, to keep the pressure on for #ParaTranspo online booking, advocate for a variety of service improvements, ask for commitments to more consultation with #OttTransit riders, and ask for a #FareFreeze.
It was a long, frustrating day but it had some bright spots...for example, there are a LOT of very good, smart, empathic people on #OttCity #transit riders’ side! Together, we CAN make a difference...as cheesy as that sounds. We’ll have a summary up on our website in a few days and we’ll share a link here.
And thanks to #KellyEgan of the @ottawacitizen for the good summary of the day (including a nice shout-out!). https://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/egan-buses-save-trains-and-other-take-aways-from-city-hall/amp?__twitter_impression=true
