This summer, the city will set up new bus shelters for the first time since 2010 to reduce the number of residents applying.
Last month, parliament voted to use $560,000 in provincial gas tax cash to build 56 new transit shelters across the city, ending a freeze at the end of 2010.
But bus manager Don Hull said the expansion is only a small part of the new infrastructure that bus passengers require
It will still leave more than 260 shelters in the city.
The term of office covers the target.
\"We have a list of hundreds of outstanding requests,\" Hull said . \". “Not every (requested site)
It makes sense and works. up.
\"There are about 2,200 bus stations in the city, about 550 of them.
A business review suggested that the city\'s goal is to cover all sites by 2015 and that the long-term goal is to cover half.
Hull said the momentum stalled in 2010, when the company had exclusive rights to advertise at the city bus shelters, which demanded termination or renegotiation of contracts due to a slump in advertising revenue caused by the recession.
The renegotiated contract ended on 2015, lifting the company\'s previous obligation to add 15 new shelters per year.
Senator Terry Whitehead says it\'s time to catch up.
\"We are far behind --
Of course it was on the Hill, said Whitehead, who said the residents in his ward were \"very clear\" and they wanted to be in the increasingly busy corridors, like going up James Street, there are more West Fifth Street and ymal Road.
\"We can\'t ignore this if we really want to increase our passenger flow,\" he said . \".
\"I hear from the residents, especially the elderly, the lack (Bus shelters)
Stop them from taking the bus.
\"At least in the winter, the same is true for Jessica Evans, who has cerebral palsy and uses an electric wheelchair to walk around.
Evans is part of a city.
Funded projects to help educate residents of cognitive impairment to take the bus independently
And she wants to do it as much as possible.
\"I want to use it a lot.
\"Every day,\" she said, on buses such as Rymal Road.
\"It\'s hard in winter . . . . . . More (shelters)
Will make me happier. And drier.
But Ivins also pointed out that it is difficult for some existing shelters to get in and out with wheelchairs.
Just because the sidewalk stopped, no one else could enter.
Barrier-free facilities advocates recently persuaded the city to start a barrier-free review of all shelters.
Hull said the work started last week.
Before the city invests more money into new shelters, it must also repair most of the existing infrastructure damaged by vandalism and graffiti at a cost of about $175,000.
\"I would like to say that we will replace at least one piece of glass in about 500 shelters,\" he said . \".
\"Between repairs, reviews and new infrastructure, I think we\'re moving in the right direction, but that\'s a matter of time and money.
\"HSR is in consultation with members of Ward on priority positions for 56 new shelters that should be entered in the summer and fall.
There is no budget guarantee for new shelters next year, but Hull said staff are looking at proposals for new advertising and maintenance contracts starting in 2015.
