The city needs to do better after an estimated 80,000 people choked off travel in the city on Canada Day, Mayor Jim Diodati says.
“We never had a transportation plan like we do for New Year’s Eve or did for the Wallenda walk,” he said after the large crowds made movement throughout the city impossible. “We had a lot of opportunity to be prepared for this.”
Facebook was lit up with stories from residents and visitors complaining of trips normally measured in minutes instead being measured in hours. Other complaints included those from residents living near the tourist areas being unable to leave their homes or welcome guests.
