moving movie

A link to a short film about Bus Rapid Transit in Bogota Colombia that has generated much discussion on the web site about the debate between Light Rail and BRT (with a NYC focus).

Gil Penalosa, who is featured in the film, is speaking in Hamilton on Monday, February 25, 7 pm at the Convention Centre downtown. It's free, too.

Check the movie out and consider the arguments and ideas put forward in the discussion, and how they may relate to Hamilton. Bus Rapid Transit is on the agenda in the city, and a grassroots group has formed to push for LRT.

Be sure to check out Penalosa on the 25th, and certainly get involved with TLC/Hamilton Transit Users Group/Hamilton Light Rail (links on the sidebar) to create a better and more sustainable transportation system in Hamilton.
