Given that public transport is associated with drastically lower emissions per kilometer travelled and subsidies per user than private car transport, how can the City justify cutting ETS's budget and reducing service frequency?
As both City Council and the City Manager have outlined, this is a very challenging budget time. To contribute to the goal of a zero per cent tax levy in 2021, ETS proposed a small portion of frequency reductions for certain bus routes, but these adjustments would not have a major impact on riders. For example, a rider might have to wait an additional 2 minutes for a particular bus. We are still very confident the goals of the Bus Network Redesign will be achieved when it launches in April 2021, should Council decide to proceed with these adjustments.
