Yesterday at City Hall

You may remember that my first post of 2007 was about progress on the Metropass Affinity Program – especially since the exact name and concept was adopted by the mayor‘s campaign team as part of his transit platform in the run-up to the fall election.

I met with TTC Chair Adam Giambrone and Vice-Chair Joe Mihevc yesterday, along with the people from the Sierra Club who have been financially supporting and doing the administrative work of the MAP.

It was my first time “in” City Hall (that is, where all the councillor offices are) and it was pretty cool. Someone in Giambrone’s office bikes to work too – which is impressive, as winter is finally hitting Toronto.

While I won’t let out too much news here just yet, I can tell you that Adam and Joe are fully on-board with the concept and goals of the Metropass Affinity Program (namely, to get more people using transit instead of their cars, to get more people buying Metropasses, to encourage business at Toronto stores, and to help de-smog our air). Still to be worked out is exactly how the city or the TTC will be involved, and what kind of financial obligations there will be, since there will be a lot of administrative work if this little idea of mine from a couple years back becomes very successful.

It’s a significant step towards continuing the Mission Statement (“to do my best to break and destroy the dominance of the automobile in this city”) that I published in the fall. I don’t take Mission Statements lightly… so you can expect a lot more.
