"TTCriders"

Posted on January 31, 2014

TTCriders (ttcriders.ca) is a grassroots transit advocacy organization that gives Torontonians who use the TTC a voice. It emerged as a response to the tens of thousands of transit users who said that they want better transit in Toronto.

Their goal is to build a TTC that works with and for transit riders. Their Vision for a public transit system is based on the following guiding principles:

– Fair and affordable fares
– Building modern, fast transit into all corners of the city as fast as possible
– Making public transit fully accessible transit
– Frequent service that connects all our neighbourhoods
– Environmental sustainability
– Respect for front line TTC workers
– Respect for fellow TTCriders
