I think this budget needs a much closer look and consideration of what 2017 is supposed to bring.

I'm signing this petition because City Transit is a very important part of this community and cutting back services only makes it more difficult for minimum-wage workers, disabled people, and parents with small children to get to and from where they need to be. People still work on Saturday and Sundays as well, and not just until 5 o'clock at night.. sometimes it until 11pm. Are these people suppose to spend their hard earned money on taxi services to get to and from work? It's unacceptable.

Thanks for adding your voice.

the PM was just here and gave Sault Transit millions..and this is how it's used..the politicians pocket the money, and raise the rates on the city!!! typical

I understand that everything costs money, and the city is in a bit of a slump, but reducing bus service is not the way to go. The last thing this city needs is more problems, and more people out of work, because they can't get home or to work on Sundays. Many lower income people work in retail, restaurants, bars, and shift work in hospitals, and long term care facilities. Why prevent these people from getting to work, and push the city further down. Now is the time for bold thinking, not nickle and diming. If the transit sipervice was efficient and affordable, with clean, up-dated buses, a campaign could be launched to vastly increase ridership and increase revenue. People could be encouraged to take public transit instead of shovelling out their cars in the morning. Please take another look at the situation, our city is worth saving.
