Better Transit Now


Public transit connects us to jobs, education, services and our communities. Getting more people to choose transit reduces traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions. Despite Toronto’s growing population, there are fewer people riding the TTC because transit riders face overcrowding, long wait times and rising fares.

The TTC recognizes the importance of attracting new riders but does not have the proper resources to take action.

This document, Better Transit Now, is TTCriders’ “alternative ridership growth strategy.” It proposes four paths for increasing ridership and points to equitable ways to raise the revenue needed to pay for them.
