11th Ave. is a Transit Hub, or Isn’t It?

“We’re a bigger city, we’re growing all the time, and our transit service is always improving, and this is a way to ensure people get to where they want to go as quickly as they want to get there,” said Fougere.

Wait, that’s a real quote from the Mayor, but it’s from January.

Last year Regina successfully fought off a boneheaded change proposed by the Mayor and the Ward 4 councilor to move the downtown transit hub out of the downtown. Now the change has come in the backdoor, as removal of 11th Ave.’s bus-only lanes.

This only months after the Mayor suggested he was still investing in Transit (on 11th Ave.). In 2013, “Fougere … stresses that the city is continuing to invest in transit improvements.”

To use the Mayor’s words, this is a way to ensure people in private cars get to where they want to go as quickly as they want to get there. Everyone else? No such luck.
