Parking in Waterloo Region

Weren't you the one who just said we shouldn't generalize about people?

For the vast majority, we are all multi-modal in our transportation choices and have observations from each type of experience.

I walk. I bike. I take GRT. I drive. I am a car passenger.

I gather insight about many things about our community, including parking, while in transit on any mode and draw my conclusions based on all of those experiences.

My observations about the parking situation in our region is informed from those observations and the reports and data produced by the various government bodies.

Based on all that input I have decided that in 99.9% of local situations there is too much parking, not enough of a premium on parking, and that we still cater to owners of dockless vehicles (myself included) far too much. Until I have experiences and data to the contrary that is what I will continue to believe.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.
