The Brampton Project - My Commentary

I'll admit, the Brampton Project's episode on Brampton Transit did have some flaws. One can expect that in the snow, buses will not run on schedule. But, that in itself is not enough to dismiss it as being invalid.

The video was meant to be a social commentary on living in the suburbs. The truth is that you cannot live in the suburbs without a car. Service is not frequent enough, and does not take you close enough to your destination. I believe that public transportation is critical to the viability of our urban spaces, the future of the environment, and our own health and safety. Brampton transit is the fastest growing system in Canada, but it has a long way to go.

The Brampton Project was trying to prove that without a car, mobility in Brampton is impossible. If it were a bright summer day, the results would have been the same.
