WHEREAS the COVID-19 pandemic and financial challenges brought by Bill 23 have left public transit agencies in Ontario in desperate need of funding and support.

WHEREAS new polling from EKOS finds that 82 percent of Ontarians want the province to provide more public transit funding.

WHEREAS many of our neighbours rely on transit to get where they need to go and cannot afford longer wait times or higher fares, but the Ontario Government Ontario has not made the necessary investments to address the ongoing fiscal challenges facing local transit agencies.

Add your name to demand that the Ontario Provincial Government immediately invest $750M in transit operations, fund 50% of municipalities net operational costs and give public transit agencies the support needed to stop the transit death spiral of less service and higher fares.
