Rally to fix TTC crowding

Our buses are overcrowded. We need more TTC service NOW to ensure a #SafeSeptember on transit.

But Premier Ford wants to cut bus routes, privatize them with companies like Uber, and charge more for longer trips. This will mean higher fares and less service, especially in neighbourhoods where more racialized and working class residents live.

Join the rally at MPP Vijay Thanigasalam’s office to demand permanent provincial transit funding without conditions, so riders get enough service on buses, streetcars, and subways!

Saturday, September 12
1:30pm-2:30pm
8130 Sheppard Ave East
Share on Facebook


HOW TO GET THERE:
The rally will happen in the parking lot behind MPP Vijay Thanigasalam's office at 8130 Sheppard Ave. East, the Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Transportation.

ACCESSIBILITY INFORMATION:
* This event will not be a march. We will have several chairs available to sit in.
*Bring a mask and hand sanitizer. Extra masks and hand sanitizer will be available.
*Bring sunscreen and water!
*Single-use Presto tickets will be available.
*For any accessibility needs or more information contact: info@ttcriders.ca.

WE NEED permanent provincial funding so riders get:
- Enough bus service for physical distance
- Return to 100% service levels immediately, and add more service for physical distancing
- More bus-only lanes for faster trips
- Lower fares for all
- Fair fare integration: One fare within Toronto and 2-hour transfers between TTC, YRT, MiWay, Brampton, and Durham Transit.
- Keep all-door boarding on buses
- No fare inspection
- No privatization or provincial takeover of our public transit system
