No Action    Motion To: That the Transit Commission: b. Giving authority to the General Manager to permit small pets onboard transit vehicles and in stations, with the requirement that the pet be transported in an animal carrier or crate that can rest on a customer’s lap; 1. Recommend that Council direct staff to develop an amending by-law for enactment, as described in this report, that includes the following:
Passed    Motion To: Whereas staff have recommended to Council that bicycles not be allowed on light rail during peak periods; and, Whereas the utility of LRT will be increased when it is incorporated into the multi-modal trips made by residents, including to and from locations not in close proximity to an LRT station; and, Whereas it would be desirable to accommodate bicycles on the Confederation Line and Trillium Line to the maximum extent possible, including during peak times; Therefore be it resolved that OC Transpo permit bicycles on the Confederation and Trillium lines without time restrictions, subject to extraordinary demand management, and the proposed restrictions on designated door boarding and storing in the multiuse area only, and that the Transit By-law be amended accordingly. Be it further resolved that staff review the operations for one year, including the collection of data on usage and impacts, with a report to be submitted to the Transit Commission by Q4 2019, being after one year of operations.
