C-Train ticket validation

During times when you're rushing to get the train it can be time consuming to find your tickets, quickly validate them in the machine, then continue to run for your train.

My idea, is to create a smaller version of the currently existing validation machine and have one in each carriage of the train. This way, passengers won't have to run as much during rush hours and tickets can be validated with easy once leaving fair... more »

Marlborough Plaza

Due to the recent closing of many stores in Marlborough Mall closing down for one reason or another, I have had an idea on how to better it.

Instead of closing the mall entirely; I suggest building an apartment building on top of the current building.

I feel this will draw a lot of attention to the Marlborough area, the currently existing Walmart will have more customers than ever before due to the new apartment building... more »

Paperless transit

Instead of having to go to the store to buy bus tickets and passes, I think Calgarians should have the option to download the bus pass or tickets to their smartphone.

 

The bus pass will have an expiration date and automatically expire when the date is reached. The tickets will also have a count down once one is clicked and shown.

Diversifying YYC's Workforce & Digital Fluency for Students

Calgary currently lacks the ICT talent to bring itself into the future. There are existing efforts to create the infrastructure needed for tech giants to operate in Calgary, but we need to offer formal and informal computer science learning opportunities for all citizens. By 2020, we will teach coding/robotics in schools, quadruple computer science graduates (currently graduating only 1000 per year) and create a culture... more »

C-Train safety

Instead of having a yellow line at the platform; replace it with a yellow bar or gate.

 

The bar or gate cannot move until the incoming train hits a sensor both incoming and exiting the station.

 

This could also be improvised to work in a way that people exit through one gate and people board through one gate, strategically placed at each door.

Free wifi on Calgary Transit

City of Calgary cTrains and buses should offer free wifi. The amount of morning and afternoon commuters that would be checking work emails would contribute to the economy, it would encourage transit ridership and the City could use the channel to promote things such as transit apps, low income assistance programs, bus pass reminders, etc.

Liveability & Safety through Smart Connected Infrastructure

Intelligent Interconnected Infrastructure offers greater security and liveability during daily life or critical incidents like flooding, fire or intruder attacks. On-off automation, operations and monitoring systems control efficiency of water, electrical, gas, transportation and telecommunications so only limited city segments cease operations and needed resources are diverting elsewhere.
