I’m glad we were able to catch so many residents on the Danforth this morning on their daily commute!
We had some great conversations about my plans for improving public transit in Scarborough — such as freezing adult fares for four years and reducing the cost of metropasses to make it more affordable for residents to get to work every day.
I’d also advocate for an increase in bus frequency along major routes, so that residents aren’t waiting out in the cold for so long every morning. This morning, for instance, we stood with commuters for nearly twenty minutes at the Danforth/Midland intersection, shivering as they waited for an already-full bus on a high-frequency route. It only gets worse in the winter.
As your City Councillor, I will work hard to fix this.
Scarborough residents deserve a more efficient transit system.
