So Moved, St. John’s: 23 November 2020

The Holiday Market Sike This just in: to discourage the congregation of shoppers, the forthcoming Holiday Market weekends of December 5 – 6 and 12 – 13 have been cancelled. Your city Council wants you to know that businesses are open, and to please support the local shops downtown during this difficult time. However, rather than maximizing pedestrian space by closing Water Street to vehicular traffic, they ask that you practice your best physical distancing… while forced to congregate on sidewalks.  In support of the motion to cancel, Mayor Breen said, “We feel that we need to make the decisions that are necessary for the safety of our residents as we move forward [during] this very challenging time for everyone.” He later stated, “This is not about not going shopping downtown; it’s about not encouraging congregation… events such as this encourage congregation.” Bolstering the Mayor’s support for this motion during…

Memorial Students Rejected a Bad Proposal, Not a U-Pass Program

in Journalism by

If you’re disappointed with the results of the recent U-Pass student vote at Memorial, don’t be disappointed with the students. It’s good news that 51% of eligible voters participated, and it means that 71% of those students voting “No” is a clear rejection of the proposal by the student body. However, this vote can only tell us how students felt about this proposal. It does not tell us how students feel about a U-Pass in general. Students did not support the specific U-Pass program proposed by Memorial University, Metrobus, and the City of St. John’s because of ineffective communication, inappropriate pricing, and inadequate scope to address the core transit issue: that all true growth opportunities for Metrobus ridership lie outside the current service area. Metrobus and the City have been thinking about U-Pass programs as a means of improving public transit since at least 2011.  One of the recommendations in…

M.V. Transportation, and American company, has won the bid to provide public transportation services to the disabled in St. John’s and Mount Pearl. “They will put in place a new fleet of 18 buses. So, that’s a brand new modern fleet with all of the things that are necessary to accommodate riders,” said St. John’s Councillor Tom Hann, who notes the upgrade was necessary because user numbers have been climbing steadily.

Bus updates from two N.L. coasts

in Daily Indygestion/Journalism by

In bus news from St. John’s, the city says it’s not rushing out to drop $15 million on 30 buses. This came up after a decision last week to increase Metrobus’ budget from $7.5-million to $15-million, allowing them to purchase a new fleet. Councillor Tom Hann says the borrowing will be spread out over at least seven years. He says the city will never reach the $15-million mark at any given time, because part of the budget each year will be allocated to debt reduction. On the west coast of Newfoundland, Corner Brook City Council held a public meeting last night about the future of its bus system. A group of 70 people showed up, including seniors, students, workers and people with disabilities. They mostly shared their displeasure with the system because of frustrating routes, long wait times and inconvenient hours of operation. They recommended improved signage and a service…
