John Tory’s transit budgets are methodically and systematically destroying the TTC through less frequent, slower and overcrowded service.

For the 2017 budget, John Tory is now talking about a minor increase in funding to avoid service reductions. The reality is that service already has been reduced due to TTC budget shortfalls. In addition to this, today’s service does not even meet the TTC’s own standards, due to overcrowded routes.

We riders know that service is not good enough. Beyond our own experiences, we have been following the news and the numbers to know that John Tory’s claims of maintaining service quality are inaccurate. To help riders see through the smoke screen, we explain service reductions in more detail here and explain overcrowding here.

Through 2016 to January 2017, there were 64 TTC routes that were either overcrowded or had their service reduced.  When a route is overcrowded the TTC is required to increase service to reduce overcrowding to meet its crowding standards. Check below to see if your TTC route is among those.
