This Thurs at 8am, join us at King Station to hand out Overcrowding Relief Kits (snack, crossword & more). The Board will vote Thurs. on how to relieve Yonge Line crowding, but they fall short of what we really need: building the Relief Line ASAP!

This is the line for the Sherborne bus asking Bloor. There is far more demand for public transit than supply. Tory's consistent lack of investment (his announcements are merely shuffling money around the budget) is harming the TTC and its riders.

I'd love to see fares reduced or even eliminated, but I fear this is a strategy to have riders solve the capacity problem instead of adding the needed service. (And it won't work.)

Converting 505/506 from streetcar to bus requires 75 peak buses (equivalent to 50 CLRVs) less the 7 buses already reassigned to Dundas from King. This is from the same TTC that tells us they have no spare buses to run more service. Someone is telling porkies.

tweet. It’s 1 am on a Saturday and I’m on a 514 going W and bc of cars jamming the street from Spadina to Bathurst, we’ve sat through 5 traffic lights. I’m sure restaurant owners aren’t complaining tonight. But what about the mother trying to get home to her kid?

If you’re going to hand out discounts like candy, try making the King streetcar free after 7 p.m. to encourage people going to theatres, restaurants and clubs to take transit.

Look what else not funded... Big shocker: the transit fare equity program is not going anywhere w no funds. How can promise better commute, no fare increases, then not fund this‽

We're calling for 2-hour fares on the (and across the city!). Add your voice: We want the pilot to work for riders and businesses on King. We can make it work without cutting the pilot's operating hours.

The King St pilot is working. Ridership is up & the streetcars are faster & more reliable. However, there is room for improvement. In addition to announced improvements to local parking & public spaces, I'm asking for for the TTC's 2 hour transfer to be implemented first on King
