With more and more people seeking to call urban areas their home, we must focus more on transportation to get them around the city.
'Downtown London' represents over 1100 members, works with our community to improve the offerings, the experience and the overall health of the core area of our great city. London's downtown belongs to everyone and is our calling card to the world.
As we strive to be "best in class" of the municipalities of our size, we are sadly lacking in transportation that is accessible, efficient and, yes, rapid!
In order for the city to grow and to be competitive and connected to the rest of the region and the province - we must be able to compete on all levels and Rapid Transit is high on the list. To attract the talent, companies and investment we desire we must have an excellent transit system.
To be a truly walkable and healthy community we must focus more on a great experience, great transit, pedestrian friendly and accessible streets and less on roads and cars."
