Burlington Ward 6 Candidate Renato Velocci
From the recommendations in BACCC’s Options for Travel report, which would be your top priority to enact to ensure safe, reliable, convenient and equitable transportation options?
This issue has been floating around in Burlington for over forty years.
At that time I suggested the use of smaller vehicles, but never went thought
Trying new electric transportation as the budget allows would be a starting point.
Encouraging car pooling is another choice. I did it myself for over thirty years
when working at Nanticoke and Pickering plants.
Would be happy to join your group for more consultations.
If environmentally friendly transportation options are not convenient, residents will be less likely to choose those options over driving.
What steps would you take to ensure environmentally friendly transportation options are convenient?
Support for future friendly environmental solutions will be sought.
Environmentally friendly transportation needs to be perceived as safe in order to be viewed as a viable option.
What steps would you take to ensure all users feel safe when using all transportation methods?
Whatever will be using, It is a must that safety rules and regulation must be met.
