Cars and buses
I've been reading all the
information on global warming, overcrowding, cost of gas and finally
transportation problems. Don't they seem to be all the same problem? In our
quest for a sustainable Olympics we've spent huge money on a useless highway
that is just going to increase the above mentioned problems.
Raise the price of gas,
and make it really difficult to drive private vehicles (with or without snow
tires). With the infrastructure money from all the parking spaces and snow
removal and other services we can set up a proper public transportation service
throughout Whistler and the Sea to Sky corridor. Spend that money on grants to
make the buses and taxis more fuel efficient and there will be more room for
the buses and other forms of transport to get where they are going.
