Good question to ask the province during conversations about the subway upload: are they prepared to invest in improvements like platform edge doors?

Thread on TTC and tomorrow's council report. This issue needs a thoughtful discussion so tune in to Council for the full debate. My position in short: I have serious concerns about the TTC upload. For many of us, the TTC is the backbone of city life (1/6)

No representatives from or anywhere West of Yonge Street have been recommended for the Board. (Don't forget, we're throwing the new Board a Welcome Party before their first meeting on Tuesday: )

That our publicly-funded transit bodies create a new fare system they know will markedly reduce access to TTC's more vulnerable & low income riders, speaks volumes about value they place on them. Shame.
