Where does Halifax Transit spend our bloody taxes?

Posted By on Thu, Aug 3, 2017 at 9:30 AM

Halifax Transit just got $14 million to update their software system? what happened to the previous $43 million for technology? There are still times when the 'stop request' sign doesn't display, and the drivers have the nerve to say. "but I see it on my dial, I know to stop". No fucking good if you're at the back of the bus and you don't know if he is going to stop. How are they going to fix the 'driver backdoor' problem? Most drivers just don't give a fuck. They want a loud 'thank you' when you get off the bus, but seem unable to bring the bus to a stop, at the bus stop sign, like 20 feet away. Is it a power game they play, just to irritate passengers that don't treat them like demi-gods. Something is deeply wrong in Halifax Transit, I bet they're playing politics with our taxes and time. It's time for us to get a third party company to take our complaints about the crappy service we get. who awarded the contract for those cheesy plastic seats on the new buses? Don't set anything down on one of them, these seats are more slipper than Halifax Transit management. I'm waiting for someone to be thrown from a seat, when a bus has to slam on the brakes. I'll be a witness. —Fuck the environment, I need to get a car

Survey Asks

What should Halifax do about Aribnb?

  • Limit the number of listings one person can have
  • Charge a per-night fee that funds affordable housing
  • Limit Aribnbs to actual home-sharing only
  • Set a cap for percentage of a neighbourhood that can have Airbnbs
  • Leave it be and let the market sort itself out
