CHIEF MINISTER OF GOA: SUPPORT GOA TAXI REVOLUTION

Dear Manoharbhai, Tourism is the backbone of Goa's economy and tourists across the world & India are used to services like OLA/UBER, it's time to allow them to operate in Goa. Besides,  Goan taxi drivers never use the taxi meters required by law and charge exorbitant fares for their services. Here are benefits: Boost to Tourism Cheaper commuting for all with no return fare Less cars in crowded cities - easier parking Shared OLA will reduce traffic congestion Easy to calculate fare based on GPS - no surprises Cashless payment with online receipt for every transaction Taxes paid directly to govt. increasing tax collection Its upto the driver to find the best route Gainful employment of sincere drivers and can instantly decide to work whenever they have time even if its 2AM - Basic need for airport/hotels Instant decision to Taxi hire saves time Don't have to keep driver waiting/circling in city Old/young/designated drivers forced to drive have alternative - less accidents School kids can be dropped/picked up for school/tuition through shared ride system Automatic GPS based tracking system provides better security Instant feedback to customer service regarding experience Immediate and automatic update on driver rating based on feedback Prompt refunds if applicable Eco-friendly - reduces pollution - less no. of cars owned People don't have to drop/pick others - both save time and obligation People don't drink and drive - particularly Tourists Taxis don't have to wait at Taxi stand and can be available anywhere 24 x 7 People from outside Goa don't have to come with their own cars, instead use local taxi - help businesses. We request that our elected representatives provide improved alternative which encourages innovation and competition instead of our broken taxi system and not to give in to the voice of Taxi drivers looting Tourists and Goans. At least allow online taxi due to LACK of proper public transport system. Please sign this petition so our honorable CM can look into the matter.- Armando Gonsalves- Avelino D'Sa- Mahesh Sardesai- Milind Barve- Mousinho Reis- Nilesh Borde- Rohan GovekarN.B.: Please refer our Facebook Page - linkWhat you told us - linkPetition Comments (5 days) - link

Petition to CapMetro

Save Austin Bus Route 21/22

CapMetro is proposing to eliminate the Route 21/22, and we, the community, say no! The CapMetro Board will be voting this Wednesday, November 15th at noon at 2910 East 5th Street on whether to put these changes into effect starting June 2018. This is an open meeting, so if this is important to you, please sign this petition and do what you can to be there! Route 21/22 services East Austin, Cherrywood, Central Austin, West Campus, Tarrytown, Clarksville, Downtown, East Cesar Chavez, and Holly. Removing this line effects the entire region. If anything, CapMetro should be increasing the frequency of this line, not eliminating it entirely. - This change means there will no longer be a north/south route through East Austin that services the UT area.  - This change means there will no longer be a bus that runs the entirety of Exposition Blvd. - This change means there will no longer be a single bus that loops around the city to service all of these neighborhoods: East Austin, Cherrywood, UT, Central Austin, West Campus, Tarrytown, Clarksville, Downtown, East Cesar Chavez, and Holly. Instead you'll have to transfer, transfer, transfer, increasing your wait time and your travel time.  Thank you for showing your support by signing this petition so CapMetro knows that we, the community, are not ok with this proposed change.

Petition to Bernardino Carvalho

Extend Kaua'i Bus Hours On Holidays and Weekends

We all use public transportation on Kaua'i. The Kaua'i Bus has been available after Hurricane Iniki hit in 1992, to help people get around the island. Since then, small changes were made; but not enough.  The major obstacle we bus riders face is that the Kaua'i Bus has very limited hours on the weekends, running every 2 hours starting from 6 A.M to 5 P.M depending where your destination is, unlike the weekdays where the Kaua'i Bus runs hourly from 5 A.M to 9 P.M island wide.  There was a proposed plan for the Kaua'i Bus just this summer of 2017, making a few changes, taking off and adding bus stops, but never took or made the effort to extend the hours for the Kaua'i Bus on the weekends and holidays, so with that being said:  We, the undersigned bus riders and supporters respectfully request that the Kaua'i Bus schedule be improved to provide hourly and later weekend and holiday service  (like weekday service) because 1. We need to get to and from work on weekends and holidays; 2. Visitors need the service to see the sights and attend various events; 3. Residents, including alot of kids and kupuna have alot of places to go on the weekends. Expanded bus service will help get cars off the road, benefiting those who have to drive longer distances, reducing traffic and our carbon footprint. Also providing more work for our Kaua'i Bus drivers.  Because these additional services will cost more money, we respectfully request that the Council approve Bill No.2670, providing for a 1/2% General Excise Tax (GET) surcharge to help pay for more transit service.
