Excerpt

Why do we need free transit?
Public transit should be a right for everyone in Toronto. Using subways, buses, and streetcars shouldn't require paying fares, or user fees, that penalize riders with lower incomes.

Like public education, libraries, clean water, and healthcare, public transit should be funded by government revenues. Regardless of income, which part of the city you live or work in, or if you have mobility challenges, transit should be easily accessible.

Imagine how empowering free transit would be: No more barriers between you and your destinations. No more fare gates. No more harassment from "fare police". Toronto transit fares have risen faster than inflation. Even with the low-income fare program, many people find public transit simply costs too much. Free public transit would make mobility accessible to all.
