Whereas transportation and public transit continue to be significant and important public policy matters; and
Whereas public transit (known as HSR) in the City of Hamilton remains a priority for Council; and
Whereas public transit is currently apportioned to residents based on geographic area and service levels; and
Whereas Council has stated on numerous occasions, it supports a system wide approach to public transit which includes enhancing service levels;
Therefore let it be resolved:
That City staff report back as part of the 2016 Budget process the feasibility and impacts of adding HSR to the general levy; and
That this report align with the overall City Transit strategy.
