Over the past week, Ottawa’s city councillors have been, in a rare touch of populism, riding the buses this week as part of the so-called Transit Challenge. The idea, started by Free Transit Ottawa is simple: give up your car for a week, and avail yourself of the services of OC Transpo. The Transit Challenge is a lot of things to a lot of different people. Some were fully on board: Coun. Glen Gower upped the ante and says he is going to take the bus for the rest of the month. Others, like Coun. Scott Moffatt, were less supportive:
...Seems like the campaign is more to shame those who don't rather than promote those who do. Where would the world be without social media?
But whatever you think of the Transit Challenge, and whether it will bring any real change to Ottawa transit, one thing is for sure — the councillors tweeted through it.
