The Toronto Environmental Alliance (TEA) is currently in the midst of a series of community workshops centred on the City/TTC’s Transit City plan for a network of light rail transit (LRT) and bus rapid transit (BRT) lines across the city. (see above image)
Focused on reaching communities in Scarborough, North York and Etobicoke that have been underserved by transit until now, TEA’s workshops were designed to educate citizens, increase public engagement, create discussion and generate support for an improved Transit City plan.
TEA would like to engage Toronto’s knowledgeable transit advocates and enthusiasts in a mini TorontoTransitCamp to bring their perspective to the Transit City plan.
Along with results from the inner suburban workshops, the results of the evening will be compiled into a report that TEA will be submitting to City Council in the spring.
If you’re interested, the mini TorontoTransitCamp will take place:
Thursday, March 8, 2007 from 7-9pm
Committee Room 2 @ Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. West.
Please RSVP with Beth Jones (email@example.com)
