Transportation

Promote a Bicycle culture and improved Public Transit

Expand public transit

Continue to expand safe bicycle lanes throughout the city. Kelowna is now home to over 300 kilometers of on-street bicycle lanes

Off-street bicycle paths have grown to over 40 kilometers. My goal is to see a loop of off-street bicycle paths linking all major hubs of the City. The next key link in Dilworth Rails with trails to the Mission Park Greenway along Dilworth Drive and Benvoulin Court.

Promote a road and bicycle connection from the Glenmore Valley to UBCO. This is a vital link that is long overdue. The City has taken practical steps during my term with the creation of John Hindle Drive, but I look forward to the day UBCO is connected to Glenmore by this new road. (This was one of my first goals when I first ran for office in 2008)

Implement Rapid Bus on Highway 97 from UBCO to West Kelowna (2013)

Implement a Rapid Bus system on Gordon Drive by (2014)

Work toward improving local governance over local transit.

Promote Phase II of the Highway 33 extension to Downtown Kelowna.

Completed the second phase of the "rails with Trails" bicycle path along the Highway 33 extension corridor. (It connects Spall Road to Dilworth Drive. This is projected completed in 2014)

Lakeshore Road bridge over Mission Creek – Complete this vital upgrade. (2014)
This will also have an-off road bike path.

I have promoted working with other local municipalities in establishing STPCO which is the Sustainable Transportation Plan for the Central Okanagan. This promotes walking, bicycle use, and public transportation with a goal or reducing the dependence on the automobile.
