Ask Ontario for emergency transit funding
Buses, light rail and subways help cut air pollution, bust congestion and tackle the climate crisis. During COVID-19, public transit is crucial because essential workers depend on it.
But transit is in trouble.
Due to stay-home orders, many transit agencies have had massive drops in ridership, as much as 85 per cent.
They’re losing millions of dollars every day.
The solution? Emergency funding from the provincial and federal governments. Ottawa has recently stepped up and announced it will contribute. Now it’s Ontario’s turn.
Please send Ontario’s premier this email urging him to support emergency funding so transit keeps rolling.
