TD Place shuttle routes still not finalized

Capital Ward Councillor David Chernushenko says the routes shuttle buses take to TD Place on game days are not necessarily finalized.

His comments come after residents on Lakeside Avenue near Dows Lake blocked buses en route to the REDBLACKS game on Saturday.

Councillor David Chernushenko said residents have reason to worry about the number of buses driving up Lakeside, but it is the quickest route to and from TD Place.

He does say the city is testing other routes like Bronson and Preston to see if they can avoid Lakeside.

"You know, if it's only an additional couple of minutes to run on a route that doesn't impose this sort of traffic on a residential street, then I would hope we could move to that Bronson - Carling - Preston type route rather than using Lakeside," he said.

He said it will take them another few games to figure out traffic flow and finalize the shuttle route.

    Perhaps we should remind David Chernushenko that the Lakeside residents have been working on this issue for 18 months and do not have his support. Yes indeed, the residents of Lakeside should be concerned. Another reminder to David Chernushenko is that Lakeside is not the shortest route but rather Sunnyside. A refresher for David Chernushenko is the comment he first made to the residents of Lakeside which is "not on Sunnyside". At least the residents of Lakeside have taken on the issue of getting shuttle buses off ALL residential streets not moving them off one residential street to another.
