Petition Tag - metro
Tesco on Kennington Park Road has been open for a nearly a year. Most people living nearby do the majority of their shopping in this Tesco local due to time constraints and a lack of personal transport.
There are hardly any value products in store any more and alot of prices are higher than the bigger supermarkets.
The store is so busy they have even added a self service till. We feel that the loyal customer base they have built up over this year deserve to be treated fairly.
Metro at Bangalore is the right step forward towards making this city truly international. This will not only reduce congestion on our overloaded road transport but will also be environment friendly. The need to cut trees for road widening or using own vehicle for commuting will be nullified to a great extent. Travel by Metro will be convenient, safe and affordable for all.
This petition is created for awareness and to bring all like minded people on single platform of having Metro at Whitefield station (Kadugodi). There are multiple reasons to do so and few have been highlighted below:
1) Whitefield station is the last railway outpost of Bangalore connecting southern lines with ample parking space for future Metro expansion.
2) Kadugodi bus stand (which is fully functional with Vajra, Vayu Vajra, Big 10 and other buses plying on this route) is the confluence where in people arriving from Hoskote and Kolar change their transport to catch appropriate city bus. It is also used by residents in and around Kadugodi/ Whitefield to commute.
3) Major existing residential/ commercial/ office projects and upcoming projects in the vicinity of Kadugodi area makes a fully functional Metro a must to avoid traffic, pollution and stress.
Do you think Melbourne’s train system is sub-standard?
Are you sick of trains running late or just being cancelled?
Are you sick of the trains being over crowded in peak hour?
Do you think Metro is no better than Connex?
If so then sign my petition below to get some real action to fix Melbourne’s ridiculous train system.
Since April 2007 we have been kept awake over most weekends, public holidays and long weekends due to loud music coming from Clermont. The music generally continues until 5am the following morning.
We have been reporting these incidents to Metro Police, Emergency Services and SAPS to no avail.
We know that the music is coming from taverns in Clermont yet when Metro Police is phoned to tell them about the problem they deny that the taverns are even open.
We have proved them wrong on many occasions. The music then carries on and our complaints aren’t dealt with,
The taverns reportedly have permits which stipulate conditions but they are not being adhered to.
It is not just the neighbourhood of Cowies Hill being affected but most of Clermont too.
Clermont is notorious for being very dangerous at night and if taverns are allowed to blatantly break the law it will continue to be a dangerous place for all who live there.
Joe McElderry's success on the X Factor has highlighted one important thing - the X Factor auditions don't come to Newcastle!
Tony Horne In The Morning on Metro Radio spoke to Joe about this - and Joe is fully with us - he's joining the fight to bring the X Factor 2010 auditions to Newcastle - but we need your help too.
Quoting Joe: "There's lots of talented people in the North East. A lot of my friends are singers and are amazing so I think they should do auditions in Newcastle." Hear Joe talking to us here: http://filesocial.com/o1r59m
TV companies work well in advance, so we need to get this campaign up and running now so that we can lobby the producers in time!
You can listen to Tony Horne In The Morning, weekdays from 6am and Sundays from 10, on Metro Radio.
We are Bradford People First a self advocacy group, run by and for people with a Learning disability.
• We are running a campaign to enable people with learning disabilities and disabilities to travel on buses before 9.30am Monday to Friday using our concessionary bus passes.
• We are unable to use our bus passes before this time so we are limited to the time we start work , attend college, do voluntary work , get to medical appointments etc
• We feel that we are discriminated against, treated unfairly and often humiliated being asked to get off the bus.
• We are unable to afford to pay full fare as many of us are on benefits and often travel with carers, who we also would have to pay full fare for.
• Like many other people with a learning disability we are dependent on public transport as we cannot drive.
• Other councils across the U.K. have implemented a scheme which enables people with disabilities to travel for free at any time e.g. Reigate and Banstead, Luton, Greater Manchester and Suffolk.
• We would also like to point out that people who are visually impaired are allowed to use their bus passes at any time within West Yorkshire and I would like this to be available to all people with a disability.
• We have been writing to M.P’s and the Government to highlight our campaign.
The Metro have told us that they 'have the discretion to make the cut off time earlier or to fund free travel all the time', but due to the extra expense they are not currently willing to change the scheme- Dave Pearson West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive 17/07/09.
THE WHEELS ON THE BUS GO ROUND AND ROUND, ONLY AFTER HALF PAST 9- FOR SOME!!!
A campaign has been launched to bring the Metro or a tram system to the West End of Newcastle by reinstating parts of the Tyne Valley Line closed as a result of the Beeching Cuts in 1958.
Before 1958, communities such as Newburn, Lemington and Scotswood were connected to the city centre and Hexham via a local train service.
Residents of the Outer West are unhappy that they have no access to the Metro, despite contributing through Nexus to the running of the Metro system.
It's time for the Metro to go West.
While no official figures exist, many of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) subway station parking lots used by commuters are unsafe and cars parked there during the day are often broken into, vandalized, or stolen. According to TTC personnel, off the record, a car is stolen from Finch station every day and 2 per week on average from Kipling.
On August 27th, 2008 the TTC approved a recommendation to discontinue the policy of allowing Metropass holders to park for free at TTC commuter parking lots. According to the TTC, the 14,000 parking spaces generate $2.7 million per year. However, with an operating budget of $6.3 million per year, the TTC loses money on its parking lots, as 80% of all parking spaces are occupied by Metropass users. The new policy begins in the second quarter of 2009. (http://www3.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Commission_reports_and_information/Meetings/August_27_2008.jsp)
PLEASE JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN GETTING INVOLVED! PLEASE FORWARD THIS PETITION SO THAT WE MAY GET AS MANY SIGNATURES AS POSSIBLE. ONCE COMPLETED, THIS PETITION WILL BE SENT TO THE TTC AS WELL AS THE MUNICIPAL AND PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT.
Associated Newspapers, publisher of London Lite, and NI Free Newspapers Ltd, which publishes thelondonpaper, have recently paid for 70 newspaper recycling bins to be placed at 56 sites across the West End, and will be responsible for the emptying and recycling of nearly 400 tonnes of free newspapers a year – saving the equivalent of 6,400 trees.
We would like them to do the same in the London Borough of Waltham Forest, starting at Leyton station. A huge number of the free newspapers given out in Westminster end up being discarded by commuters in places such as Leyton.
We want the newspaper companies to understand that installing recycling bins in Westminster alone will not solve the problem. They need to address the problem in London's outerlying boroughs too since that's where the papers end up at the end of the day.
A child day saver ticket on the metro is £1 but when people get to 17 years they have to pay adult fares, which for a day saver is £4.30 and £1.90 to travel one stop compared to 30p for under 16's.
As the growth of Riverside Metro Auto Group continues, it has become very evident that they are not providing parking to there employees. Employees from Riverside Metro Auto group are parking all along Doyle Street and blocking our mail boxes, city trash bins, and blocking our driveways.
There has been plenty of resident complaints to Riverside Metro Auto Group and no action has been taken to solve this problem. In addition residents have been issued parking tickets for parking in our own driveways leaving us no other place to park.
Having this petition expresses our concerns to the City of Riverside to issue parking permits to each household to eliminate these on going problems.
June 20, 2006
In Early August Here In Los Angeles, I, The Petition Writer, Disabled, Was trying to take the bus here in the San Fernando Valley. It was a day that had 100+ degree heat.
The Bus Line I was trying to take runs only once an hour. The first bus arrived after waiting for some time. The bus was packed! The few able bodied people that were waiting with me, were able to squeese themselves onto the bus.
When It came time for me, the driver just said "Sorry, we're full. There's nothing I can do." With that, he drove off. Another hour goes by, and the next bus shows up. By this time I'm over heated, dehydrated, and angry.
The second bus is also overloaded with riders, and I could'nt get on that one either. That's when I had enough.
I pulled out in front of the bus and said, "If I can't get a ride, then you are'nt going anywhere either! After a short time, the bus line supervisor arrived. At that time, I figured I got my point accross, and allowed the bus to go.
I explained the entire situation to the supervisor, He took a written report, and since then nothing else has been done to remedy the problem.
Due to consistent over crowding of busses in the San Fernando Valley during peak hours, the settlement made in the copied document on the attached page in 1998, is currently insufficient. Furthermore, MTA is currently in violation of this court injunction. And has been, ever since it was written.
Those disabled, are still being left behind. Particularly during the peak rush hour due to overcrowding.
Therefore, more must be done to give disabled, and elderly riders sufficient service. Many of the bus lines located in the San Fernando Valley, have running times of one hour.
During peak hours, weekends, and during the summer season, this practice is not only insufficient, but a danger to those who rely upon this service as their only source or transportation.
An elderly person, or anyone that is in a type of frail health should never be forced to wait sometimes up to an hour in summer temperatures of up to, or over 100 degrees, or forced to wait for upwards of another hour for yet another bus due to extreme over crowding during these peak hours.
Being subjected to such circumstances, is not only an inconvenience, but is a considerable physical danger to those placed in that situation. Furthermore it is negligent, and due to the bill passed on the previous page, of which they, "MTA" are as previously stated above, currently in violation of this court injunction..
This is a document petition designed to force MTA "The Metro Transit Authority" to place the proper amount of transportation needed during these peak hours in to the areas where they are needed most. And to abide by the court injunction placed upon them back in 1998.
The Answer To The Problem: This could be easily done so by pulling busses from other less used areas, to those areas that are more congested.
Furthermore, this signed petition would make "The Metro Transit Authorities", MTA's continued lack of proper action concerning this issue, a criminal act of negligence. And therefore should be subject to legal action to the fullest extent of law.
The following is a statement from MTA of its policy regarding disabled patrons. As you will read, it does not go far enouph to ensure the safety of its patrons. Below the statement is the changes that must be made to ensure the safety of not only those patrons that are disabled, or elderly but all patrons.
"Metro has procedures in place which are to be implemented when a wheelchair patron cannot be boarded. The following procedure is to be taken when an operator cannot board a wheelchair patron.
The operator must stop and explain to the customer that the bus is full and when the next bus will arrive. Central Instructions has been requested to re-issue a bulletin to operators to this affect. The operator must also contact Bus Operation Control and inform staff that a wheelchair patron was not boarded and the reason why. Bus Operation Control Staff will:
1.) Assign a Field Supervisor to the location to contact the individual.
2.) Check the following bus to determine available capacity.
3.) Contact the nearest Division to determine if there is an Operator and bus available to transport the patron." (End Of Statement Of MTA Metro Transit Authority Policy.)
As of: June,15-06, the above policy of MTA (Metro Transit Authority) is inadequate, and needs to be changed immediately.
The MTA (Metro Transit Authority) bus operator should immediately, after explaining to the disabled patron that the bus is full:
A.) Contact Bus Operation Control while still on site with that disabled patron.
B.)Upon contact with Bus Operation Control, the driver must confirm to the effected patron that the contact has been made, and that another bus is then being added to the affected bus line to relieve the overcrowding problem on that line.
Driver must then be able to tell the effected patron the time that added bus will arrive. The replacement bus must then arrive vary soon there after.
C.) A written record of when and where this incident has occurred is to be made.
D.) A weekly review of these records should be done so that during peak congested hours when incidents like this occur, a bus can then be added to the effected line or lines during those hours, to relieve the overcrowding, and allowing adequate access to both able, and disabled patrons.
E. Furthermore, during extreme heat, NO patron should EVER have to wait an hour or more for a bus. Many patrons that rely on this transportation system do so either because they cannot afford their own vehicle, or due to age, or physical disabilities of one form or another, are unable to drive.
For those that are in poor health, having to endure waiting for upwards of an entire hour during the extreme heat conditions of summer can, and no doubt have resulted in possible heat stroke, or worse.
This is policy is unacceptable, and is a danger to all patrons.
If MTA (Metro Transit Authority) can supply areas of Downtown Los Angeles with busses that run approximately every fifteen minutes, then they can supply the congested areas of the San Fernando Valley with buses that can run more often than just once every hour.
MTA (Metro Transit Authority) as a public service, needs to correct this problem, and must be obligated as a public service to take proper actions needed to protect the people that it serves. Failure to do so should result in a charge of negligence on the part of MTA (Metro Transit Authority), and should be therefore held accountable.

MNPS currently has only one academic middle school magnet. The demand for this program excceds the demand often by 300% however MNPS, the director and board continue to ignore such demand and fail to meet the needs of high achieving students. Forcing many parents to opt out of the system often to private schools.
