After quite some time wondering what to do after a MySQL database error erased the old blog from the internet, I’ve decided to return to my roots. GTTA Visions was started back in the days when Metrolinx was the Greater Toronto Transportation Authority. Back then, I was filled with enthusiasm over the prospect of truly building a transportation system that would give all Toronto-Area residents the option to leave their cars at home. Much progress has been made, but there is still work to be done – especially with the price of operating a car rising almost as quickly as the price of living in a transit-friendly community
I remain an urban planner looking for work in transportation, land-use or heritage planning. So, in addition to expressing my views on the issues of the day, I will also use this space as a way to showcase what I can bring to the industry. I hope to show that I’m not just someone with a few dollars for a custom domain and no rationale for their views. I am someone who forms his opinion based on the evidence presented to him and I can back up my recommendations with the things I’ve learned in school and in the workplace.
Thanks for reading, both now and in the future.
It feels good to be home!
