Candidate for Burlington mayor proposes free public transit for seniors

D'Amelio suggests the city's 26,250 seniors, who make up 15 per cent of the city's 175,000 population, could ride for free from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and after 7 p.m. from Monday to Friday, and all day on the weekends.

"I want to see our seniors out and about enjoying the wonderful amenities that Burlington has to offer. Taking public transit can also be a social event for seniors living alone. The buses are running anyway so there's no additional cost." thespec
