Unfair fare hikes. Delays. Overcrowding. Toronto has a transit crisis.
The provincial government used to help pay for the costs of operating the TTC but has stopped doing so, even though demand for public transit has reached record highs.
More fare hikes are in the works, even though riders in Toronto get less government-subsidy per ride than riders in other North American cities. We already pay too much.
Torontonians deserve better.
The provincial government must contribute its fair share of funding to the TTC so we get frequent, fast and affordable transit now.
A $700 million yearly contribution from the province could pay for:
- an increase in overall service by at least 25%
- a fare reduction of 20 cents a ride, for a total saving of $100 a year for frequent users
- deeper fare discounts for those in need, such as low-income workers and Ontario Works and Ontario Disability recipients.
Everyone wins when the province funds the TTC. We reduce gridlock. We help stop climate change. And we get the public transit we deserve.
Fund our TTC.
