Question:
I. Can teachers and students ride the City bus to school if the school buses are not running because of bad weather?

[ Where I live, City buses only run on main roads, back roads and subdivisions is a negative so people depend on their own Vehicle.

II. Does Ontario have a pretty good public transportation system?

[ Knoxville does not have a good system, you need your own car
or "move & work" close to where the city bus can pick you up]

Public transportation always runs. I have never seen it stop due to weather. I live in the city. Hamilton has a lot of public transportation because we have an extremely high number of individuals living off social assistance (which is also why we pay ridiculous amounts of tax for property and high car insurance). My older brother lives in Ancaster (next to Hamilton) and they don't have the same public transportation we do. It really all depends on the needs of the individuals living in the city. I bought my own car though because I don't want to take the bus downtown and deal with waiting in bad areas at night; so I just got snow tires and drive carefully to work.

We don't really depend on government [social assistance] Yeah right!!!
wait a minute... maybe that's why the conservatives call the president a socialist president [government health care] :doh: and maybe that's why the city buses only run around the..areas..where... people need..public..assistance..and that's why they vote..for who ever..gives more..handouts..but it causes higher tax increase at the end...just like you said. WOW Good thing you bought your own car. Here you don't wanna catch a city bus down in knoxville magnolia Avenue at 10 o'clock at night or later,
That won't be safe! unless you own your own gun and know how to fight in UFC :thumb2:
Anyway, I didn't mean to get all political and off subject or anything, its just that I wish I could ride the bus sometimes. Anyway, public assistance means government handouts but they're not free as they want to paint it, they come from taxes and the more assistance they hand out, the more taxes we pay KOOL!!

People pay taxes and there are some who don't but still get money back from the government. In return, they receive a service (i.e. police, fire dept, road construction/repairs, parks, public transportation). There are certain cases where the government is needed, like the military. But all in all, it ought to be limited.

Some people don't want to pay alot of taxes and if the city they reside in is a high %, either they pay more or move somewhere that's cheaper such as the outer suburbs or to a different state. Unfortunately in certain locations, people vote for politicians that are for big government and a lot of restriction, which in turn can lead to less liberty or more tyranny. However you look at it, more government is wrong. The way the US is being ran is not the way I want the country to become in the next 50-100 years in the future.

Otherwise, that's just my 2 cents.

I would love to have PT where I live! Sadly, I don't see that happening as I'm living out in the country/city area. After experiencing the PT both in NY and Wales, UK... I learned to love it.

I'm out in the country as well. Well, small town. No PT. Not even taxi's lol.

There are some cities that have PT here, but none of it is really advanced, like what you would find in NYC. Toronto is probably the most advanced with buses, subways and street cars. People don't have too much trouble getting around without a car there.
