From Vote Winnipeg 2018 (Winnipeg Free Press) accessed 2 Oct 2018:

Q: “What should Winnipeg’s plan be for the future of public and active transit?”

A: “Our current transit system isn’t keeping up with how the city is growing and developing. If we are to increase ridership, we need more effective and accessible transit. I believe increasing the reach of feeder routes so all Winnipegers have access to transit, as well as increasing the frequency of main routes is how we need to grow our transit system. There is a need to reassess the existing routes and their ridership, so buses are neither empty or so full that they have to pass by bus stops without stopping. We need to put the enormously expensive bus rapid transit plan on hold, and take just a small portion of the money it takes to build one rapid transit corridor and invest it into making our current system efficient and effective for the most Winnipegers possible before we consider a rapid transit system in the future. Safety also needs to be forefront in the future of our public transit, and having a plan to protect the riders and operators of our buses is paramount.”
