Happy New Year, everyone!
I logged into my email this morning to see something very cool.
Back in early December, I emailed the mayor, new TTC chair Adam Giambrone and vice-chair Joe Mihevc to offer my congratulations on their re-elections, but also to establish contact in pursuing linking up my efforts with the Sierra Club in setting up the Metropass Affinity Program (which has local businesses offering discounts to any customer who shows a Metropass) with the TTC… after all, it was part of the Mayor’s Transit Platform.
The good news is that Joe Mihevc has emailed me back and he and Adam and David are very interested in getting something really constructive done with the Metropass Affinity Program. It looks like we’re going to have a meeting with everyone involved to brainstorm and see how we can advance things.
The bad news is that there isn’t any. What a great way to start a new year!
I’ll keep you updated on any news regarding this. More people on transit equals less people in cars acting selfish and destructive.
I’m getting this really good feeling about cycling and transit in Toronto in 2007.
