Lower Fares, More Service! Public Transit Struggles In and After the Pandemic

December 13, 2020
2:00 pm EST

When: Sunday December 13th, 2pm

A second wave of the pandemic is raging across the country, and Toronto and other cities are again in lockdown. Austerity for social provisioning including public transit is high on the agenda for city governments across North America. In Toronto, both the city government and the Toronto Transit Commission are juggling much needed public transit expansion with budgetary restraints. We are at a crucial turning point for the public transit and ecology movements. What is the current state of the public transit movement? How is it engaging with the challenges of massive funding shortfalls, fares, overcrowding, bus lanes and regional integration? How can we get involved in the movement?
