Our vision is to see consistent improvements in transit for all Hamiltonians, but what does that mean? Where are improvements needed? What are people using transit for? Who isn’t using transit and why?
We would like to answer these questions and we need your help. Please complete our survey, and please share it, and please get your friends and family to fill it out, whether they’re transit users or not. This survey is for all Hamiltonians. The more feedback and information we have, the better.
Hamilton for Transit Survey
A brilliant new campaign has been launched by Environment Hamilton, asking Hamiltonians to pledge money towards two worthy causes: Transit tickets for those in need, and getting Councillors to ride the bus. Contributors can donate any amount to be divided evenly across 15 Councillors and the Mayor, or they can contribute in the name of a specific Council Member. The catch? The pledges will only be collected for Councillors who complete the goal. As of the date of this posting, some Councillors and the Mayor have agreed, others have rejected the idea, citing lack of transit access, others have refused simply on the grounds that transit is too inconvenient. So far over $4396 has been raised.

Thanks to everyone who came to City Hall on January 21st for the Bus Lane decision. We didn’t get the result we wanted, but this certainly won’t be the last time City Council will hear from us on transit issues.
