Design: Questions for key stakeholders to consider

1. What measurements are best suited for monitoring progress toward meeting the government’s ultimate goals for public transit?

2. Given that changes in the transport system and travel behaviour take time, have reasonable timelines been set to achieve targets and outcomes? Can the strategies developed to achieve objectives be sustained over time?

3. Do we fully understand the important factors that influence British Columbians’ satisfaction with transit services and their travel mode choices (this may differ by region and community)?

4. Which of these factors are within the control of BC Transit? The Ministry? Local governments? 

5. Are the benefits greater than the costs of the option(s) being considered to change transportation behaviour?

6. If demand increases, as a result of policy disincentives to automobile use or other transit incentives or motivating factors, will the quantity, quality and affordability of transit services be sufficient to meet and sustain demand?
