Smart city ideas.

Sidewalks wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs. Better place sidewalk ramps. Buses running more frequently, with a maximum wait time of 15 minutes. Less buttons to push to cross streets and more automatically changing lights going with the flow of traffic. Two types of city plows, one for roads and one to get rid of the snow pushed onto sidewalks but the plows plowing the roads. LRT stations and bridges that are all weather accessible for those on wheelchairs. Public washrooms at all LRT stations. More grates to reduce street flooding. Not using herbicides on parks. Have all bridges to be wheelchair accessible. I remember getting my passport and the bridge had no ramp to go down, thankfully I do not use a wheelchair. Use as much profits as is reasonable from the oil and gas toward research on sustainable resources or to use sustainable resources. Tax gas more and use some of that tax toward subsiding public transit, like they do in B.C.

What will change for Calgarians if we solve this problem? (Measurable)

It would also be neat if we could pay our bus fare via bottles or that at least at LRT statiosn they would have places to deposit bottles that would get returned and that they could keep for a little bit of money for themselves.

How could we make it happen with technology or data? (Attainable)

Have city workers, when they are working on something, if they see a problem take a picture and show it to their bosses and see if it is an issue that needs to be dealt with.
