On January 30, 2018, TTCriders organized our biggest Transit Day of Action yet.

Volunteers converged at more than a dozen TTC stops and stations across Toronto, to mobilize riders and educate them about the transit issues at stake in the City Budget.

TTCriders is calling on John Tory and City Council to fund better TTC service and fix overcrowding this year. 

The Budget Committee approved funding for 2-hour transfers and the low income Fair Pass last Tuesday. Now we need to keep the pressure on for better service. Send a message to John Tory and City Council before they start voting on the budget on February 12.

Extreme overcrowding  

Subway delays and dangerous overcrowding at St. George and Bloor-Yonge station on January 30 had many people calling for better service and for the Relief Line to be funded and built as soon as possible. Some news coverage about the Yonge Line also noted the concurrent Transit Day of Action.
